  2. Paint each half in a different colour.
  3. Cut the toilet paper roll in half. Paint to match the paper plate halves.
  4. Make two slits on the toilet paper rolls, and slide the paper plate into these slits. These are now the legs.
  5. Cut out a dinosaur head and tail from the coloured card. If you don’t have coloured card, you can paint white card in the colour you want, or you could use a cardboard cereal box.
  6. Glue the head and tail in place on the paper plate. Draw on an eye and a mouth.
  7. Make sure that your dinosaur is dry, and then you can decorate it. Paint on some spots using a foam paintbrush, or make your own using a pom pom and a clothespin.
  8. Let your little one run wild with the decoration. You can add googly eyes, interesting patterns, or you could even cut out spines and make a spinosaurus, or a stegosaurus.
