Learning, growing and achieving together


We are looking at dragons and unicorns this week and how they can become characters in fairy tales.

Extra activities

  • make a dragon or unicorn mask, use it to act out the characteristics of your creature.
  • pretend to be your character and ask a member of your family to ask you questions. Eg. what do you like to eat? Who are your friends? What is your favourite place to go? 
  • Draw a map of where your character lives or where they like to go. Draw on paths for them to walk along.
  • make stick/finger puppets of different characters and act out stories with members of your family.
  • Make Coconut Cloud dough - Recipe for Coconut Cloud Dough:                                                                                                       1 cup baby oil  (ANY oil should work. Do not use baby oil if you have a child likely to taste this, stick to vegetable oil.)                4 cups plain flour                                                                                                                                                                                   1 cup corn flour / starch (I used this to make it whiter, but if you don’t have any convert this to ordinary flour)                                   2 cups desiccated coconut + more to sprinkle over the top for fun!                                                                                             Simply mix the oil into the dry ingredients with your fingertips until it is fully combined. It should resemble damp sand.                 Play!   
  • Play a game of unicorns/dragons tail. Tuck a scarf or ribbon into the back   of your trousers for a 'tail.' Try and take the others players tail while keeping your own. The winner is the one who keeps their tail the longest. Good Luck!
  • Draw a map of where your character lives, remember to draw paths for them to walk down. Are there any trees? lakes? fields?
