Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Gathering

Driftwood may be gathered anytime of year in Parksville B.C.

Step 2: Cleaning the Driftwood

Using a water based wash including some bleach for obvious reasons!

I also let the sunlight dry out the driftwood pieces once the wash is complete!

Step 3: Accessories Galore!

The sky is the limit when it comes to dressing your Dragon

Tip: Thrift Stores have tons of wonderful visual idea's that can add real character to your Driftwood Dragon!

Step 4: Tools

Depending on the size of your Dragon the tools that may help you are:

Air Gun Compressor - Really not that difficult to use! ( saying that please use safety and a reliable person to teach you. )

Hot Glue Gun - Comes in all shapes and sizes and you will soon have a favourite one if this becomes an obsession!

Take care of your hands while using any kind of tool!!

Step 5: Find a Special Place to Create!

Where ever you find piece and a place that your Dragon can grow into it's own is the place for you to create!

The pieces will come together like magic!!

That's what happens when you create a Dragon!


Step 6: Look Who Is Watching!

You never know who will be watching you!

Step 7: Detail

Pay attention to detail!

Even on the Tail!

Step 8: Name Your Driftwood Dragon

Every good Dragon deserves a Name!
