My daughter had a play date today and the girls wanted to paint, so in celebration of the upcoming Chinese New Year we painted these egg carton dragons that I found on Mom’s Crafty Space. In Chinese astrology, 2012 is the Year of the Dragon, which will start on January 23, 2012.
- Egg carton
- Paint (we used orange, red, yellow and black)
- Paint brush
- Googly eyes
- Red paper for the tongue
- Glue (I ended up using a glue gun)
To make the dragons, take the bottom of an egg carton and cut it in half lengthwise. Then remove one of the end cups for the head.
