Another great free resource to learn Chinese character is
Arch Chinese (http://www.ArchChinese.com). It has the stroke order animations for all the simplified Chinese characters. You can even generate handwriting worksheets to practice writing Chinese characters on paper.

The dragon puppet page does not work. I've had a printout of this for years. I've tried to go back to this page and cannot find it.
I've gone on this library's website and they seem to have deleted some of their crafts.
