Make a paper plata-a-saurus

Make your own dinosaurs, or any other creature you can imagine, with just a few materials from home!  This activity ignites imaginations while developing fine motor skills. We’ll be making these at the museum on October 24th.



paper plates


glue, tape, staples or brass fasteners

construction paper

paint, markers or crayons

How to: 

1. Fold the plate in half, with the bottom of plate on outside 2. Stand the plate on the rounded edge, or cut off one end to create a flat standing edge 3. Transform the plate into a dinosaur (or any other creature you want) using paper, markers, tape, etc. You can add color to the plate, and make body parts or any other details you like.
