This is what your hand-dragon will look like. By moving your thumbs to open and close the mouth, it works like a puppet. NOTE: Ask a friend to help you use the guide (your hands will be busy).
A front shot of the hand-dragon.
Start by holding your hand side by side. Your pinkies should be touching. Keep them straight. Your pinkies will be the horns.
Fold down your ring fingers so that they cross the base. Keep them straight. The tips of your ring fingers will be the dragon's eyes.
Fold your right middle finger down over your right finger.
Fold your left middle finger down over your left ring finger. Your middle fingers should remain uncrossed, with the fingernails touching.
This step is a bit tricky. Bring your index fingers down UNDERNEATH your ring -fnger eyes. Straighten your index fingers and bring them up so that they touch the bottoms of your ring fingers.
Bring your thumbs together to form the bottom of the mouth.
Separate your pinkies to make the horns.
Move your thumbs to make the hand-dragon talk! The dragon looks even better if you're wearing thin gloves. It's harder to do, because the gloves make your fingers stiffer. But it looks great.
