Gung Hey Fat Choy

Chinese New Year
Year of the Dragon made this music class a lot of fun.  I simply took a green and red fabric and sewed them together.  I believe the dragon is at least 7 feet long.  The children hold onto the the yellow strips of fabric along the side.  One child puts the head on like a hat and off flies the dragon around the room. 


Here is a picture of the head.  The fabric is glued over a shoebox and that supports the head as a hat.
My camera did not take a very good pic of the tail, but it is about 7 - 8 feet long.
Try singing this song for the dragon parade.
