Gung Hay Fat Choy

The dragon is the most fortunate and powerful of the the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac.  The year of the dragon is said to be a year of change... usually from bad to good.  Definitely something to celebrate!

To make these cute little dragons, download the template from Storytime Crafts.  Print 2 copies for each child - one image as downloaded and one mirror image. Decorate the dragons however you wish... painting, colouring, markers, etc.  We painted the dragon using watercolour paints. When dry, cut out the shapes, glue the like shapes together and then attach using brads.  These will be sturdier if printed on card paper or glue the image to a piece of cardboard, cut out the shapes, then glue the mirror image to the other side of the cardboard.
