UPDATE: The Year of the Dragon

(Click on a photo to see a larger image.)

 The seniors, especially my Asian contingent, LOVED the ornament. I think what they really liked was that someone cared enough to acknowledge their holiday and their culture in a very hands-on way. I took pains to make sure that the colors and the images were culturally correct and the Asians in my group appreciated it. One Chinese gentleman who has peeked in on our classed from time to time even joined in at the end and made an ornament as well. They particularly liked the fact that the finished decorations were promptly put on display in the main room as part of the festive holiday decor, all commenting on how nice they looked hanging amidst the tinsel and bows.
