As lots of you know, one of our favourite crafts to do are paper crafts. The kids love to make things with paper and glue, and use their own ideas in their craft work to express their individuality. If you are looking for some more paper craft ideas please check out my paper craft posts!
My five year old son wanted to do some paper craft the other day and I thought he would like to make a dinosaur as they are one of his big interests at the moment. He was super excited to make his paper craft dinosaur!
To make your paper craft dinosaur you will need – coloured paper of your choice (we chose blue), glue, scissors and felt tip pens.
Begin by cutting out the shapes you will need to form your dinosaur. We cut out a body shape, four legs, a long neck, a head and a tail.
Next arrange your pieces where you would like them to be before sticking them down. My son finds this easier so that he can decide where to put the shapes before he sticks them down with glue. Once you know where you would like the different pieces use the glue to stick them down.
Once your dinosaur is dry, you can add features with your felt tip pens. My son drew on spots and a face!
My little boy loves his special dinosaur craft and is super proud that he made it himself! I love seeing the pride in kids faces when they see what they have made.
Dinosaur now has pride of place in my sons room, “keeping a lookout for any bad dinosaurs who may enter my room mum”!
