To finish up our China Week,
We had a treasure hunt for the dragon we made.
Just like in the book Jin Jin the Dragon.
Yesterday we made a dragon.
We started out with these supplies:
She strung the toilet paper rolls on two pipe cleaners,
and went to town.
She was playing pretend all while making it.
In the book, Jin Jin finds writing on a rock and a log,
That helps him find his way.
She painted a rock we found in the garden, along with a log.
After my kids went to sleep,
I wrote on the rock in Chinese characters.
I just used glitter and glue and put it in the oven for 5 min, so it wouldn't drip.
It says, "sun, river, forest."
In the morning, I hid the rock and the log.
We used it like a map to find our way.
She was delighted to find her dragon and some candy,
That was hidden in the tree.
And she played pretend with her the rest of the day.
P.S. I love the way Baby H. is looking up at his sister!
