Dragon Bulletin Board

I finally used all the plates saved from the Kindergarten Swirly Color Wheel project to make scales for a bulletin board dragon. This bulletin board is pretty long and in a hallway so it's really hard to photograph. You can't tell from the glare, but the signs just explain how Asian dragons are different from Western dragons, why dragons from China, Japan, and Korea have different numbers of claws, and the third addresses whether or not dragons are real. The Kinders argued that it was a caterpillar, not a dragon, until I got the head stapled up with the rest of the body. :) I just wish I had been ambitious enough to make scales!
