Footprint T-Rex - tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur craft

 

Our daughter loves to character play. Almost daily she takes on a new role to play & she likes to assign roles to us as well. For the past two days she has been a baby T-Rex. She has been roaming around the house roaring & stomping her little dinosaur feet. I decided to use those little dinosaur feet to make a T-Rex craft for our baby tyrannosaurus.

I painted her foot in 2 different shades of green & added a few black spot to her feet.

We pressed it onto a sheet of white paper & let it dry.

I drew in the tail, arms, legs, jaw, eye & teeth to form our dinosaur.

When we were done, she wanted to make another craft. “More dinosaurs!” It has been a while since we made a pasta craft. She wanted to make them out of pasta shells. We made a stegosaurus with our pasta.

We started with rigatoni for the legs. I used a glue gun to glue two pieces of rigatoni together for each pair of legs. (Adults should operate the glue gun.)

Add a bead of hot glue down the spine & add the elbow macaroni to form the spines.
