From Zoey and Sassafras Dragons and Marshmallows to Dragons Love Tacos, some of our favorite books have featured fire breathing mythical creatures. 

This month, our Family Dinner Book Club celebrates dragons by featuring the middle grade classic How to Train Your Dragon and I know this one will soon be added to our list of dragon book favorites. 

So to kick off our Family Dinner Book Club night I thought it would be fun to make our own dragon. I checked with some of my favorite bloggers for inspiration and have some fun dragon crafts your kids can make too!
