One of my new Usborne books is called Dinosaur Fun and it is filled with great dinosaur themed crafts. G and I decided to start with the ankylosaurus. While the book is part of the Usborne “preschool activities” series, like with lots of activity books, it works for a range of ages. Since G is 6, he was able to do the whole project himself instead of needing a lot of assistance, although we worked together because that’s more fun.
Instead of using regular cardboard, we used some nifty corrugated cardboard from a roll my mom gave me. It added a great texture to the dino.
This project is great for working on cutting skills, drawing shapes, gluing, and discussing composition.
We’re both looking forward to more dino crafting!
