"'Education is the Science of Relations'; that is, that a child has natural relations with a vast number of things and thoughts: so we train him upon physical exercises, nature lore, handicrafts, science and art, and upon many living books, for we know that our business is not to teach him all about anything, but to help him to make valid as many as may be of––
'Those first-born affinities,
That fit our new existence to existing things.'"

Charlotte Mason, A Philosophy of Education
with a quote from The Prelude by William Wordsworth

Ok, so I am trying to figure out the kite possibilities for the dragon.
I will post a tutorial soon. I am thinking glue batik and fabric windsock re purposed as a kite. If you come up with something before that be sure to let me know because the idea really intrigues me!

PS Thanks so much for the carnival. It looks FABULOUS!(done with best lispiness ;-) )

For the kite, I was only thinking of elongating and straightening the tail, and attaching the string to the top and bottom of the dragon's body. Your idea is much more creative and lasting! Or maybe if it flies with paper I could make another one with some type of more durable material, like cloth.
