Cut 6 egg cups from your egg box, paint them and then glue them together with plenty of low melt glue (adult required for glue gun). We added glitter at this point, whilst the paint was still wet.

Next, add the wiggly eyes and whiskers and tail.

Lastly, we added foam wings and foam spikes to each egg cup along the dragon’s back. And, some tiny white triangle teeth!
