Brought to you by Disney
I’m so excited! Disney, the studio that brought you The Jungle Book, is releasing the new movie Pete’s Dragon in cinemas on September 15th!
Just in case you didn’t know, our families are not-so-quietly, Disney OBSESSED and we are always so excited for new releases! Pete’s Dragon is packed with adventure and fun, following the incredible story of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just happens to be a dragon. Pete is a seemingly mysterious 10-year-old with no family or home to speak of, instead, he lives in the woods with Elliot the dragon. With the help of a young girl and her family, they set out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about his dragon friend. This movie is filled with lashings of whimsy and magic, as you’d expect from any Disney movie and along with an outstanding cast, it’s sure to be a massive hit with children of all ages!

What you’ll need:
- toilet roll
- streamers or ribbon in red
- sticky tape
- Cover the toilet roll in the green paper using tape to hold it in place.
- Draw the dragon’s head with some eyes, cut it to shape and stick it on the back of the toilet roll.
- Cut the ribbon or streamers to about 20cm in length and stick them on to the opposite end of the dragon’s face.
Dragon Foot Print Cookies
To make the dragon cookies, I used my 10 dozen cookie recipe. It’s so basic and makes over 100+ cookies, so you can freeze what you don’t need.
What you’ll need:
- 500 grams of butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 5 cups flour
- 1 can condensed milk
- Line a baking tray and preheat oven to 160°C.
- Cream the butter and sugar together until light and creamy.
- Add the self-raising flour and condensed milk to the bowl with the butter mixture and mix well.
- Roll the dough into small balls and press down slightly with your hand. Using your toy create a foot imprint in each cookie.
- Cook for around 8-10 minutes (be careful not to overcook or the condensed milk will burn).
After doing the craft activity and baking the dragon cookies together, my kids are all bursting to see Pete’s Dragon! September 15th is now circled on our family calendar and the countdown to the film’s release is definitely ON! Who else is excited to take the kids to see Pete’s Dragon in the September school holidays?
