Both the 1st graders and I were amazed with how our clay Chinese Dragons turned out! This was their first clay project and they really nailed it!
We started by making clay "snakes". Then we added some "kinks" to the snake to form it into the dragon shape.
After that, we pressed the dragons into texture plates to add "scales". They could pinch the clay to add horns and spikes if they wanted.
Once they were dried, we painted them. Love these adorable things, we will definitely make them again some day!
