Wonderful idea! I did this with my 5 year old daughter this morning and she got the hang of it straight away. She had done a zig-zag scribble, which she then decided was a dragon with sharp teeth. She drew the top teeth and added eyes. She was very quick to make up a story about the dragon, who (according to Linsey), breathed yellow fire and then grew multi-coloured fire-hair. He wasn't a very friendly dragon, but he couldn't hurt fairies!
Thankyou for such a brilliant idea - can't wait to try it out on my 10 year old when she comes home from school!
Best wishes, Lynda
P.S. Linsey is still adding to the scribble story - the dragon has now grown pink ears and is now a girl dragon because she has added bows in the dragon's fire-hair!
