First we washed, dried and saved egg shells from a few breakfasts last week. I covered the table with newspaper then gave each guest a plate with a plastic lizard, egg shells and a piece of cardboard tube.
Then it was time to decorate! They drew scales, swirls and other details with metallic Sharpie paint pens and added self-sticking gems to make them look more magical and ornate. I didn't anticipate this, but some kids also decorated the stand. I love how they all turned out! Afterward my husband took the boys outside for a dragon egg hunt (plastic easter eggs filled with candy and trinkets) in the park behind our house. We lucked out again with the weather this year and it's so helpful to get the kids outside to run around a bit! Back inside, they had cake and gift time while the movie wrapped up.
