I've been putting crafts and fun science on the back burner for a bit while focusing more on school preparation for him. He's been learning to write a few Chinese characters at his kindy and we've been doing a couple of Malay worksheets a day. I realised that it has been quite some time since we did some kind of art project together and this fun post kindled the need to try this out with Bubs.
A paper plate
Colour markers/water colours
Bubs gets excited whenever he sees the materials in front of him.
Fold the plate into half. Draw a dragon torso and wing onto 1 side of the plate.
It took us a few attempts to realise that my drawing skills produced a short and stumpy bat instead of a more majestic dragon! I then cheated and used Bub's Lego dragon wings to trace the outline.
Draw a head and tail for the dragon then staple them on together.
Bubs had such a fun time colouring his dragon.
I've to admit that I was surprised he put a lot of effort into colouring all parts of the dragon very nicely, even the underneath of the wings.
"Look, Mummy, my flying dragon!"
