Our festival this year was extended due to 5 days of rain. We spent a rainy day telling a lovely story by Christine Natale from her "Fairy Tales" book called "The Strong Boy".
While I told the story, we warmed our beeswax. Then we each made part of the dragon and fastened him to the candle (by using a hair dryer on low). He came out amazing and honestly,they did most of it.
See the fire coming out of his mouth? We did add his 4th leg before he went on the candle.
The next day, I told the story of St.George and the Dragon and we made the dragon bread.Here he is before we baked...
The girls enjoyed decorating his body using raisins for scales and sunflower seeds for teeth and spines. Last night we had a bonfire, lit our candle and slayed our dragon. He was tasty!
I found a Form Drawing that looked like an eye and we drew our "Dragon Eye" in our main lesson books. What fun!
