Colourful paper plate dinosaurs

Do you have empty toilet rolls, paper plates and paint? Why not try to make these bright and fun dinosaurs? You can make spots using your fingers, a fun way to practise your fine motor skills as well as patterns!

  • paper towel roll
  • scissors
  • paper plate
  • tape
  • pen or black marker

To get started, decorate the paper plates using paint or felt tip pens.

Next cut the paper plate in half. Put one side to the side and cut a head and tail out of the other side.

After that, cut out the dinosaur head and tail and tape it to the dinosaur paper plate body (half a paper plate).

To finish the dinosaur, cut two pieces of a paper towel roll and put slits on the side of each roll so that we could easily slide the paper plates in.
