Dinosaur, easy, simple, painting


Every so often when we get the paints out, my son declares that he want's to make something very specific and I have the challenge of working out how we're going to make it. This time he said he wanted to make a dinosaur that could stand up. Challenge set, we went about creating this little dinosaur. The pictures below all include feet but when we came to put the dinosaur together he was a little wobbly with the feet on so perhaps skip this step.

Time: 25 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Medium

Materials
Cardboard (an old cereal packet works well)
Paint
Kitchen roll
Scrap of white paper
Black marker

Method
First of all I drew the outline of a dinosaur, legs and feet as in the picture below and then cut these out.

My son painted all the parts green on both sides.

After the body was dry we decided to make him a little more interesting and have some fun at the same time. My son dabbed some scrunched up kitchen roll into orange paint and then over the dinosaur's body.
Once the dinosaur is dry, cut out a circle from a scrap of white paper, draw on a black dot and stick on for his eye. Repeat on the other side.

Finally, it's time to assemble the dinosaur. Cut a slit in his body and slide up his legs. We tried to cut a couple of slits at the end of this legs for to insert the feet but he wasn't stable enough.
