This is a play dough dragon made by my sister. Isn't it cute? Here's how to make one.
Step 1) Make a round ball shape for the head out of the play dough and then push in two googly eyes on both sides. Insert a straw from the bottom to secure the head and body.
Step 2) For the body, make a rectangular prism and attach it to the head.
Step 3) For the wings, draw a wing shape on a coloured piece of paper, cut it out and paste it on a short length of straw with sticky tape. Make two wings and and push them in each side of the body.
Step 4) For the tail wings, cut two triangles of coloured paper, paste it on another short length of straw with sticky tape and insert it on the back of the body.
And that's it! Your dragon is finished and ready to play. If you want, you can use different coloured play dough and paper or make spikes across the the body out of straws. If you use clay instead of play dough, it won't dry out and you can play with it for as long as you like. Why not make a whole collection of play dough dragons?
About a week ago we went to the Islamic Museum of Australia (IMA). My favourite room was the ‘Al Asma – Al Husna’ room. The room presented The Most Beautiful Names of Allah. All the names were painted on the walls around the room with the meaning and description of the name. In the middle of the room, all The 99 Names of Allah were painted on boxes of different sizes and set in a spiral flower shape. It was beautiful! There was also 5 other galleries full of beautiful Islamic art. One of them was Islamic art painted on three surfboards. The artist wanted to show Western and Islamic culture go together beautifully. Another piece of art work was a peacock made out of coloured and reflective glass. It was a creative idea. There was even a piece of cloth that was used to cover the door of the Ka’ba in Makkah. Overall, my excursion to the Islamic Museum of Australia was awesome!

What's you favourite book? One of mine is EJ12 by Susannah McFarlane. Today at school we had to dress up as a book character, so dressed up as EJ12 from In the Dark.
All you need for this costume is a black turtleneck, black pants, black gloves, black shoes, black headband, black fanny pack and a flashlight! You might want to hold the book, too, so people know what you are. Let me know if you dressed up as EJ12 in the comments!
