Weekly Challenge 9: Create a dragon


Weekly Challenge 9:  Create a Dragon and its Lair

This week's challenge is to use your imagination to create a dragon and its lair.  

You can make your dragon with anything you have at your house - Lego bricks, play-doh, a paper creation, anything! Or you can draw a dragon.  Then create a lair for your dragon, again using anything you have at your house - Lego bricks, paper, leaves and sticks, anything!

We will have supplies to make a dragon craft available to pick up during our Craft and Prize pickup on Thursday.  If you'd like to make one of these dragons, please fill out the request form here.  We'll have two options: a dragon made from a cardboard tube (best option for younger children, available for anyone) and a dragon made from pipe cleaners (better for older children/teens, available for anyone).  

We'd love to see your dragons and their lairs!  If you'd like to share a picture, you can email it to us at or add it as a comment on our Facebook post.
