DIY Dinosaur- Paper Plate Craft Idea

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Paper Plates are classic and almost “traditional” craft supply for kids. It’s the best choice for short notice crafting. It’s one of my favorite craft items as its cheap and easy to store. Paper plates, some basic craft supplies, and a little imagination will turn your kid into an artisan. This paper plate dinosaur is a perfect craft idea for toddlers, preschoolers and any beginners who would love to explore the craft world.

Craft supply required:
  • Paper plate
  • Glue
  • Color paper
  • Scissors
  • Popsicle stick
  • Pen
  • Cellotape
Steps to follow:
  • Cut the paper plate into two halves. However, one-half of the plate is what we require.
  • Trace the head, tail, body (zigzag pattern), legs on the color paper. Cut the traced area and make sure you have mini dots paper cut too.

  • Glue the dots to the paper plate as shown in the image. You can use different colors of paper or paint it.
  • Paste the other paper cuts(body parts) to the paper plate as described above. Wow! that looks amazing, isn’t it? Well, something is missing. I totally forgot the eyes and mouth of the dino which makes it look very funny without a face.
