Each of my boys has gone through a dinosaur stage, where they either play with dinosaurs, have to watch dinosaur shows or share thousands of dinosaur facts per day. We are a dino-loving house! So naturally a dinosaur craft is right up their alley. We love this easy Dinosaur Craft for kids to make themself. Let them get creative with their dinosaur!

How to Make an Easy Dinosaur Craft
- Toilet paper or paper towel cardboard tubes
- Craft foam (2 colors)
- Craft Glue
- Googly eyes
- Colored pencil
This dinosaur craft uses toilet paper or paper towel rolls, as the feet for your dinosaur. The body of the dinosaur sits inside of slits cut into the toilet paper rolls. It is easy to make and kids can create any type of dinosaur in the same way.
Step 1: Start by cutting the toilet paper rolls in half or the paper towel rolls in thirds/fourths (however tall you want your dinosaur!).
Step 2: Cut a slit halfway down through the middle on each side.
Step 3: Draw a basic dinosaur body shape on one color of craft foam. Cut out the body.
Step 4: Cut some spikes, a tail, horn and other dinosaur pieces, glue into place on the body. Let kids get as creative as they want. Dinosaurs don’t have to look a certain way. 🙂
Step 5: To assemble the dinosaur stick the bottom part of the body into the toilet paper roll slits.
And you are done! One stompin’, but friendly Triceratops.
