A Dino-mite Craft

By Carrie Kendro, Pixie Doodles April 22, 2020

Your kids will love creating their own dinosaur with supplies you can find around the house.  Let their creativity shine as they create and design their own creatures.  Will they make a Stegosaurus, a Brontosaurus, or an Apatosaurus?  Perhaps they will create their own unique creature!  

Supplies needed:

  • 1 toilet paper tube 
  • 1 small paper plate
  • Scissors
  • Paint and small paintbrush
  • Stapler
  • Dark color marker

1) Cut paper plate and toilet paper tube in half.  Cut two slits in one end of each toilet paper tube and insert paper plate

2) Cut one small edge from the paper plate for the tail.

3) Draw and cut out a curved section for the neck and head.

4) Paint all of pieces the pieces with the colors/design of your choice, then let dry.  Draw a face and staple all pieces together.
