Dragon*Con 2003 Kids Pictures Posted

One of the best experiences I had this year at Dragon*Con was the Kids Session during Tolkien's Middle-earth fan Track. We had approximately 15 kids ranging in age from 2 1/2 to 8 participating. Kids spent an hour drawing pictures, having their faces painted, making Elvish brooches, getting 'Sharpie' tattoos of their name or initial on their arm, and snacking on 'lembas' and apple juice. It is wonderful to see a new generation of Tolkien fans coming up! I took a picture of the session [here], and as you can see, the kids had a great time! As each child left, they were given a copy of the Two Towers Photo Guide (with stickers!!), courtesy of the fine folks at Houghton Mifflin. I'd like to thank Starlady for painting faces, Injvstice for doing the tattoos, and Maegwen for helping the kids make their Elvish brooches. Some of the kids left their pictures with me so I could scan them and post them here on TORN's scrapbook. So, you wonderful kids from all over... you're famous now!!! [Dragon*Con 2003 Kids Pictures!]
