Clay Dragons and Paper Castles
I love making these clay dragons each year with third grade. This year after we made them I saw on Pinterest Deep Space Sparkle’s paper castles here: (http://www.deepspacesparkle.com/2012/01/fairy-tale-castles-art-project/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+DeepSpaceSparkle+%28Deep+Space+Sparkle%29&utm_content=Google+Reader) and thought 3-D castles would look so neat displayed with the dragons in this same style.
The kids LOOOOOOOOOOOOVED making these. I had no idea what a hit it would be! Can we add a trap door? Can we add a princess looking out the window? Can we make the drawbridge open and close? Yes! Yes! Yes! Here the dragons are guarding (or about to destroy) the castles in the library.
