Dinosaur Silhouette

no ratings yet

What You Need:

  • Sheet of paper
  • Tempera paints
  • Black construction paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors

What You Do:

  1. Have your child create the colorful background of the dinosaur's habitat by filling it with large green plants and trees. This is a great time to discuss how different the Earth looked millions of years ago.
  2. Set the background aside to dry.
  3. Have your child draw a dinosaur on black construction paper. For a stegosaurus, start with a semi-circle shape. Add spines to the top, a long neck, head, tail and legs.
  4. Help your child cut out the dinosaur from the black construction paper and glue it to the background. Is this dinosaur a plant eater or meat-eater?
