|Some of the Save the Dragon! Club girls acting out fearsome dragons|
In the old world, dragons roamed the earth freely. Then man was created and started killing the dragons. And then new people came to earth and tried to save them. Can we do it? If we try, maybe just maybe we can save the dragons.Rules for the club include:
Protect the dragons. Never ever say or write that dragons are not real. No potty talk. No lying. If you leave dragon club not believing in dragons one little bit, you can't come back to the next dragon club. Take care of each other. Take care of stuffed animals. Raise your hand. Dragons matter!
|Seven-year-old club leader reading the rules|
The girls didn't have as much time to share their books and research as they had hoped, so much of this will be saved for the second Save the Dragons! club meeting.
During the first club meeting they were busy with:
Crafting paper houses for nano-dragons (very small dragons):
I also think that our second Save the Dragons! club will be limited to 1-1/2 or 2 hours to reduce stress brought on by over-excitement and activity.
But I am mightily proud of the creativity and planning my girls put into this fun activity for their friends, and I saw lots of smiles and genuine interest from club members who had no idea what they were getting themselves into!
I don't think I ever organized such a well-planned and elaborate club for my friends when I was a kid. How about you? Did you participate in any fun, informal clubs when you were young?
