It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Here Be Dragons

We’ve been reading “The Egg”, by M.P. Robertson, a nice little story, beautifully illustrated, about a small boy who finds an egg in his mother’s chicken coop (shades of “The Enormous Egg”), and does his little-boy best to raise the dragon that hatches from it.

It’s a favourite, needing to be read at least daily, very often more. We’ve had dragon chases inspired by this book, and done lots of hatching, flying, and roaring, too.
So when I discovered a pile of green foam sheets left over from Christmas crafts, I had the perfect use for them. Add some glitter, some star-shaped confetti, some fingerpaints and pipe cleaners…

And voila! Five ferocious, fire-breathing (see the red pipe cleaners at the mouths) dragons!
