Sock Puppet Dragon Craft

Put the sock over your hand and mark where you want the eyes, wings and tail to go. Now lay the sock flat and glue on the tail, wings and eyes.

While this is drying make your flames by cutting out a flame shape from yellow foam, a slightly smaller one from orange foam and an even smaller one from yellow foam. Glue them together in a pile.

Put on the sock puppet, using your thumb as the lower part of the mouth, and mark where the flames will go.

Take off the puppet and glue on the flames. These will need to face the back of the sock so that they turn the right way around when you put in your thumb. See photo for clarification.
