This year, I made egg rolls and wantons for dinner, then the boys and I colored. They also each made a dragon mask.

are where I got them all. Simply save the image you want to your computer, then print out at full size on an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper. Add lots of crayons and enjoy (:
My boys, getting all set up:
I love that they love doing crafts with me (:
|My youngest working on his mask.|
|His mask all done (:|
|And his dragon.|
|My oldest, working on his dragon.|
|His finished mask.|
|And his finished dragon.|
One of the things that I find most fascinating is that they both chose to make them in shades of blues--and I hadn't even told them it was a water dragon year (: I also hadn't started coloring mine yet either.
|I'd forgotten how much I love to color (: It was one of my favorite activities, well up into my teens.|
May we all have a prosperous and happy New Year!
