DIY Fire-Breathing Dragon Craft Inspired by My Knight and Me on Cartoon Network

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by the Cartoon Network Series, My Knight and Me. All opinions are 100% my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

Have your kiddos seen the adventure-packed new animated series for kids on Cartoon Network called My Knight and Me? The epic show airs weekdays at 12pm (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network and my son Brady is enamored with it! 

My Knight and Me, for kids ages 6-10, follows the quests of a colorful and charismatic trio of knights in shining armor: loyal, street-smart Jimmy the Squire; daring and determined Cat the Princess; and bold and courageous Henri of Orange, Jimmy’s dad and a charmingly inept, yet passionately chivalrous knight who might not be the most efficient protector of the realm – but sure is the funniest! Together, the knightly group sets out from the Kingdom of Epic to save the day and brighten the Dark Ages! 

The series models close family ties (Jimmy thinks his dad is the best!), emphasizes the importance of teamwork (together, Jimmy, Cat and Henri can overcome any challenge  that comes their way!) and underscores the importance of using strategy over might to solve problems (Jimmy is the man with a plan!). My Knight and Me also features clever anachronisms (like Smart-Mirrors that resemble today’s iPhones, set in the Middle Ages), which add to the uniqueness of the show.

I was super excited to have the opportunity to create a DIY craft inspired by the show! My son Brady, who loves to help me with crafts, immediately knew that he wanted to make a Fire-Breathing Dragon. One of the characters on My Knight and Me is a dragon named Bad Jack. He is Epic's most fearsome dragon and a frequent antagonist of Jimmy, Cat, and Henri. He spends more time seeking treasure and tormenting the people of Epic. Brady loves dragons so we thought that a dragon-inspired craft would be so much fun! 

Materials Needed:

Red and yellow streamers

Medium sized green pom poms 

Mini sized poms poms in color of your choice

Green and red glitter glue

Googly eyes

Empty paper towel roll

Glue (a glue gun would work great as well)

Tape

Scissors 

Green pipe cleaner stems

Small cups

Green construction paper

Crayons (optional)

Instructions:

1. Cut green construction paper to fit around the empty paper towel holder and glue it on. 

2. Take one of the small cups and cut a hole in the center. Make the hole big enough for the empty paper towel holder to go through. You will use this later on. 

3. Take the glitter glue and cover the outside of the cup. You can use whatever colors that you prefer, but we used green and red. 

4. While the glue is still wet, place the green pom poms and googly eyes on the front. 

5. Place two mini pom poms on the cup for the dragon nose. 

6. Let the glue dry.

7. While the glue on the cup "face" is drying, cut the red and yellow streamers into strips of "flames".

8. Cut out 3 strips of "wings" for the dragon with a grass like criss-cross pattern. Glue the wings down the center of the covered paper towel holder.

9. Take the green pipe cleaner and glue a strip down the center of the wings. 

10. Place the covered paper towel holder in the hole of the cup. It should fit snug and not loosely. 

11. Attach the "flames" on the front of the cup with glue or tape.  

12. Finally, make a "tail" for the dragon with several pieces of the pipe cleaners. Twist them together and make your "tail". Place the pipecleaners through the end of the covered paper towel holder. I taped these down on the inside so that they would stick.

13. Voila! You have a fire-breathing dragon! Brady loved blowing through the "tail" of the dragon to make the flames move!

Don't Want To Upsize? Here's How To Make A Small Home Feel Bigger

  (All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy) 

Photograph Credit

Sometimes upsizing just isn’t an option, even if the extra space would be wonderful. Maybe you just can’t afford the higher cost, or you just absolutely adore the house you’re currently in. Optimizing space to make a home feel bigger can save you all the costs of upsizing, and make a smaller home feel infinitely more comfortable. So whether you’re planning on expanding your family, or you just seem to accumulate more and more stuff, here’s how you can make that home of yours feel more spacious, without all the costs of upsizing.

Let all the light in

A dark, dingy space automatically feel smaller, more cramped, and even a bit more depressing. The best way to make a small space feel bigger is to welcome as much light in as possible. Keep the walls painted in light, neutral colors, and ensure any larger pieces of furniture follow the same theme. This allows natural light to reflect around the room more easily, making it feel bigger. Make the most of your windows, too. Paint the section around it a brilliant white, and keep the windows completely unobstructed. The best way to achieve this is by using a curtain rail that is larger than the window, so when the curtains are open they obstruct the wall, not the window, allowing all the light in and making the window appear larger from the room. If you’ve not got access to a lot of natural light - maybe your home is south facing, or you’re occupying a basement flat - using bright LED lights is a good way to emulate this, and can still make a room feel far larger.

Use mirrors to make spaces seem bigger

Sticking with the theme of natural light, just like with painting the rooms white to help the light reflect, it can also be helpful to put some mirrors in to get even further reflection. When a large mirror is placed opposite a window, it can almost double the light in the room, and also helps to bring the outside in, creating the illusion of more space that way. They can also help to achieve the illusion that a room goes on for further than it seems. While mirrors are the most obvious way to get this effect, using other reflective surfaces around your home will also create the illusion of space and light. Using chrome or stainless steel fixtures, particularly in bathrooms and kitchens can make the space feel larger, and even glossy surfaces and tiles can add to the effect.

Make shared bedrooms fun

The difficulty of a smaller home with a larger family is enabling everyone has enough space to feel comfortable, including space to call their own. If you have a multi-child family, sometimes those children have to share their bedrooms, and this can pose all manner of difficulties. For larger rooms, multiple single beds with large curtains or room dividers allow each child to create their own, private space, separate from each other. For smaller rooms, double or triple bunk beds have to be employed, and those areas are then the ones to be personalized. Allow each child to choose their own bedding - a child’s bedroom is no place for cohesive decor after all. Then allow them to put artwork on their section of the wall, and use bunting and fairy lights to personalize. Keep the rest of the room light, neutral, and as clutter-free as possible, and you’ve got yourself a room that multiple kids can use, without having to sacrifice their own sense of identity.

Choose multi-functional furniture

Throughout the home, furniture obviously takes up the most space. Being able to use multifunctional furniture allows you to keep the number of items down, but also allows helps to keep the costs down. Consider a large dining table which can also double as an office desk or homework area. Sofas and beds with large amounts of storage underneath are also great for homes with limited space, as storage always tends to become an issue. A coffee table which is also a trunk, a sofa which is also a guest bed, all of these things are great space and money savers, and look amazing too. Don’t be afraid to opt for larger pieces of furniture, as they can actually make a room seem bigger than lots of smaller items, which can break cohesion and create the illusion of clutter.

Utilize all outside space

If your inside space is chock full of furniture and people, the logical place to go next is to the yard. A house with a yard is a house with a space screaming for an extension, although not necessarily of the building kind. An area of decking, with outdoor seating, potted plants, and maybe even a barbecuing area allows you to move outdoors when the weather is finer, meaning you feel less cramped. Instead of forking out for an expensive house move, why not use a little bit of that money to create a yard you want to spend time in, which suits your family and gives you an extra place to relax?

Keep it clutter free

Clutter is the bane of a smaller house - it takes up space, confuses the eye, and doesn’t really help the room to feel larger. The key here is to be a little bit brutal - throw out anything you don’t need, avoid buying anything unnecessary, sell anything worth any money, and if you can’t throw it out, make sure you have somewhere to store it. Smart storage solutions in a smaller home are the way forwards, so it’s important to get imaginative. Do you have a nook which is too small to use for anything? Put a cupboard door over it and keep boardgames or crockery in there. Do you have a bathroom with a blank wall? Put up shelves or cupboards for keeping toiletries or cleaning products in. They key to a spacious home of any size is good storage, but it’s especially important for smaller homes.

Keep it clutter free, get smart with your use of space, and there’s no reason you can’t all be happy in a smaller home, without having to fork out to upsize.
