Readapalooza 20: Dragons Eat Noodles on Tuesdays

Welcome back to digital Readapalooza, our storytime for elementary-age kids. Today, we will read Dragons Eat Noodles on Tuesdays. Should stories include dragons? What could go wrong if they do? To find out, sit back, enjoy and remember to log your time for summer reading in Beanstack!

Activity: Dragon Craft


  • Empty toilet paper tube
  • Scissors
  • Glue or tape
  • Markers, Crayons, or Colored Pencils
  • Scraps of paper, plastic, cardboard, etc. (be creative)


Create a dragon out of an empty toilet paper tube.

  1. Color or cover the tube in a cool dragon color.
  2. Then cut out eyes, draw eyeballs, and glue or tape them to one end.
  3. At the opposite end, attach nostrils (we crumpled up paper and attached.)
  4. Finally, glue or tape strips of paper, tissue paper, fabric, or plastic to the inside to create the fire your dragon breathes. Be creative! Look around the house for old wrapping paper, buttons, a plastic bag, or even a colorful label from a bottle can be crumpled up for nostrils.

More Fun

Dragons eat noodles on Tuesdays, but what can you do with noodles on the other days? Try some noodle art! Create a picture or design using noodles on a piece of paper or cardstock. To keep or hang your noodle art, glue the noodles after designing and let dry.
