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.)
Choose a jumbo shell with well folded in edges on both sides.
Glue both sets of legs to the bottom of the shell.
Glue a medium size shell into one end of the jumbo shell.
Glue a piece of ziti into the opposite opening on the jumbo shell.
Add a bead of hot glue down the spine & add the elbow macaroni to form the spines.
Let the kids paint them in the colors of their choice & then let dry.
Add googly eyes to finish off your cute little dinosaurs.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
Both crafts look like so much fun and my girls aren’t really into dinosaurs, but could probably be if we tried either of these though 😉
Mai loves dinosaurs & monsters too. She is the girliest tom boy ever.
