Sock Puppet Dragon Craft

A gorgeous craft for St David’s Day, the Year of the Dragon, a fairy tale theme, or just for fun!

Sock Puppet Dragon Craft

You will need:

A red sock
Red craft foam
Scraps of red, yellow and orange craft foam
Red glitter glue
Fabric glue
Wiggle eyes
Fabric pen

Instructions:

Cut two wings and a tail from red craft foam. Decorate with the glitter glue.

Put the sock over your hand and mark where you want the eyes, wings and tail to go. Now lay the sock flat and glue on the tail, wings and eyes.

While this is drying make your flames by cutting out a flame shape from yellow foam, a slightly smaller one from orange foam and an even smaller one from yellow foam. Glue them together in a pile.

Put on the sock puppet, using your thumb as the lower part of the mouth, and mark where the flames will go.

Take off the puppet and glue on the flames. These will need to face the back of the sock so that they turn the right way around when you put in your thumb. See photo for clarification.

Red Rose Celery Stick

For the English team a red rose i thought this was such a simple and unique idea!

veggie stamping

See how when you cut the stalk it looks like a rose. (I happen to know this works with bunches of leafy lettuce, too.) We stamped away and have glittered them.

Making cards

and the plus side this could also work for Valentines Day as well!
