What to Do
1. For the dragon’s lair, cut a 15-inch square from poster board. Trace around a small plate in the middle of the square. Cut out and discard the circle.
2. Punch a hole in two corners of the lair. For a hanger, tie yarn through the holes.
3. Decorate the lair with colored paper and craft jewels. 
4. For the dragon, paint a spring-type clothespin. Cut wings and a tail from poster board. Glue them on. Decorate the dragon with glitter glue. Add sequin eyes and a paper tongue.
How to Play

Hang the dragon’s lair on a tree branch. Toss the dragon through the entrance of its cave. Invite friends to play!
