How to make a handprint dragon

Despite yesterday's paint disaster 'The Fairy' was very keen to do some painting, so we decide to be festive/patriotic and paint a dragon. After seeing Red Ted's amazing A-Z  of hand prints I fancied giving some a try.

We don't normally celebrate St George's Day but 'The Fairy' is currently into dragons so I thought she might enjoy the story. And she did!

We made the basic hand print. I love how the extra (not on purpose) smudge of yellow looks like it could be a hand. Added a thumb print face and finger tail and leg.

Added some spikes and other details (it looked quite dinosaur-ish before we added the 'fire').

Then 'The fairy' got stuck into some free painting!

Vocabulary: hand, paint, brush, dinosaur, roar, colours
