Dragon Activity Kit
The Lunar New Year is here! It's time to explore the year of the Dragon with our four magical activities to spark their imagination.
Each activity kit includes everything you need, for 1 or 2 Mini Makers to make —
Dragon Puppet - Did you know this Lunar New Year is Year of the Dragon? The dragon represents good luck, strength and health in the zodiac. As children design and assemble their dragon puppet, they enhance fine motor skills through cutting, gluing, and manipulating materials.
Dragon Mask - Masks are always a hit with our little ones and playing imaginary dragons can be so much fun. This activity enhances fine motor skills as youngsters practice precision and control while cutting with scissors and manipulating small objects during the sticking process. Additionally, cutting and sticking projects encourage problem-solving and planning as children decide where to place each element on the mask.
Dragon Egg - Of course, next we needed to make dragon eggs, just in case a baby dragon might hatch out of one! Painting 3D objects promotes problem-solving skills, as Mini Makers have to navigate the curves and surfaces of the objects. They get from seeing their painted creation bolsters both self-esteem and confidence.
Dragon Sensory Tray - Immerse young dragon enthusiasts in a world of textures, colours, and mystical elements inspired by the enchanting realm of dragons. Our Dragon Sensory Lair promises a captivating journey, allowing children to unleash their creativity and embark on a sensory exploration that sparks both excitement and wonder.

All our activities are specially designed to support the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, especially fine motor skills, creating with materials and being imaginative and expressive.
Mini Makers Like Learning
Our kits are developed by an early years practitioner with over 20 years of experience in line with the EYFS Framework. This means the activities are thoughtfully put together to encourage confident, able children who will thrive in their nursery or school; making them open to learning and new tasks, problem solving, and imaginative play.
Mini Makers are Bright
Crafting activates all of your child’s senses, which are essential to help them understand the world they are growing up in. New pathways are formed in their brain each time your child tries an activity.
Mini Makers are Strong
Making stuff is amazing for their gross and fine motor skills. Little muscles become stronger the more they practice. It also helps develop their coordination and with using opposite sides of their brain, for example when they hold something with one hand and use scissors with the other.
Mini Makers are Happy
Creative and sensory activities are great tools for calming anxious or frustrated little ones. Making also creates a safe space for expression and open conversation.
