Aren't these paper mache dragons from recycled materials just fabulous? And while of course this is a great craft for kids, these were actually made by student teachers at Marjon University Plymouth in the UK, which is probably why they're so good! Not that teenagers couldn't produce some creatures like this, they certainly could!
Love the idea of hanging paper mache creatures......
My boys would love to make a scary one like this I'm quite sure!
I think I love this orange one most of all.......
Though this winged dragon is pretty great too! And now I'll tell you an interesting little story about how these photos came to be on my blog, are you ready?
My daughter and I were riding the train from Girona, Spain to Barcelona, Spain, and there happened to be a women sitting next to me reading a book in English. Taking note of that, I tried to speak to my daughter mostly in hebrew for a little privacy. Though I guess we fell into English as well, prompting the woman to say at one point "oh you're speaking three languages!" I smiled and told her we were only speaking two, and that was the start of a very inspiring conversation, in which I learned about Lindsay and her very interesting life of traveling half the year and running a luxury yurt resort in Cornwall, England the other half of the year! It was one of those conversations that was just meant to be and it turns out she also has a jewish friend who just got married and is starting to keep a kosher kitchen and could certainly use lots of my recipes and tips! So of the two business cards with my blog address that I had in my wallet, one went to Lindsay.
After the trip I emailed Lindsay, and while we won't be in touch for a while as she's off to some very remote places in South East Asia, (and to lend a hand to a friend that has a half-way house to help young women get off the street) she took a few minutes to share these photos with me.
And that my friends is in my opinion a lovely story of two women connecting over a love for creativity and bringing good into the world, each in her own way!
