I was flipping through our “Little Library Dinosuars” book with my daughter the other day and came upon an activity page. She was instantly excited to build her own dinosaur so we got to work gathering supplies.
• Card stock (we didn’t have card stock so we used a fast food box)
• Tracing paper (optional for the artistically challenged)
• Paints and/or markers
The directions suggest using tracing paper but I freehanded the basic form of the body and legs. The concept is simply cutting a slot in the body and inserting the other two pieces for legs. One set of legs is longer so your dino stands up tall. You could easily apply this format to any four-legged animal!
Take out the paints and let your little artist go to work!
