Dancing Dragons Breathing Fire

Sounds like a the title of an exciting legend right? Why not make one up for yourselves? Eternally inspired by pinterest, we created some firebreathing dragons for the the teaparty in the orangerie.

The dragon dancing is tradition within the celebration of Chinese New Year, and is all about scaring away the bad spirits. The dragons are also symbols of good fortune and luck and represents potent and auspicious powers.

Dancing for luck sounds like fun to us and we thought it might be a fun project for the winterbreak, so we found this DIY to help you out - and all you need to get going really is some toiletpaper rolls, colourful feathers, some bright tissue paper and a little paint. They were so easy to make and the kids have enjoyed playing with them ever since the shoot. Now it's time for some dragondancing - Go play!
