You will need:

  • A wooden spoon
  • Paint (you can make your dragon any colour you want)
  • Card (to match the colour of your paint)
  • Scraps of red, yellow and orange tissue paper/crepe paper
  • PVA glue
  • Wiggly eyes
  • Black  pen
  • Glitter (optional)

Step 1

Paint the spoon and leave to dry.

Step 2

Turn your spoon upside down. Draw around the bowl of the spoon onto the card. Cut out and glue to the spoon at the base of the handle (this is the lower part of the jaw).

Step 3

Glue the eyes to the back of the spoon, and draw on the nose with black pen.

Step 4

Cut of the wings from card and glue onto the bottom of the spoon handle so that the wings stand up.

Now cut an arrow-shaped tail from the card and glue onto the spoon.

On your marks…get set….go!

It is the London Marathon this weekend so why not get your kids out in the garden or a local park and have your own mini race.

Spend the morning decorating your own racing vests and then get on your racing shoes.

Simply cut a piece of lining paper or any large pieces of paper you have at home (maybe some left over wrapping paper) in a long rectangle with a hole in the middle to pop your head through.

Get your child to decorate the whole piece of paper, so that there is a design on the front and the back, not forgetting to include that lucky racing number.

 Place it over your little ones head and use sellotape or elastic to connect the front and back together along the two side seams.

You could also make your own medals for everyone taking part in your race. When you have decorated your giant medal, simply cut it out and attach a loop of ribbon or crepe paper on the back so that you can hang it around your neck.
