We let it dry and then he got to decide how he wanted to decorate the dragon's body. He chose yellow polka-dots.
The final cup we placed with the open end to the front to be the open mouth of the dragon. We used tape to hold it in place.
Then we added googly eyes, and pulled the cotton ball thin to add a wispy beard around the edge.
Finished! It was fun to watch him move it around the table. The linked body segments let the dragon move more like the Chinese dragons at the New Year's Celebrations.
