the dragon on fire...


By sandra


Over the last few weeks we have been building something to burn at our Halloween party. 8 of us worked on it over 3 evenings and we think it looks like a dragons head.

We wanted to build a hot fire and then put it on with the hope of the flame rising out of his mouth. With 45 mile an hour wind and heavy rain burning the halloween dragon was looking dodgy…but undeterred and hoping for a gap in the rain around midnight we gave it our best…

We stuffed the inside of the dragon with boxes and newspaper and gave it our best go when the rain finally let up…

We were delighted that we got it to burn but it didnt go quite as we planned, but it was great fun.

hope you all had a great Halloween..:-)

Very good pumpkin artwork all lit up and some really scarey looking guests you had, pleased you all had fun, thats what its all about....

Those scary guests look as if they also helped to make the evening perfect :)
