Do you have a dinosaur lover at home? Does your child have dinosaur toys all over the house? If so, they probably enjoy dinosaur activities like this one. Older kids can do this craft themselves, while younger ones (like toddlers and preschoolers) will need a bit of hand. I love how you can totally change up the look of the dinosaur by using different colored paper. This easy Dinosaur Craft for Kids is easy to make thanks to the template I've included. So let's get started! You might also enjoy these Dinosaur Activity Pack Free Worksheets.

Cut out the template and use it to trace the body parts of the dinosaur on to colorful paper. I like using many different colors for the dinosaur parts.
Cut out the dinosaur parts.
Take the 5 triangular shapes and glue them on the back of the dinosaur's hump. Keep the long pointed side facing upwards.
Next, take the 3 circles and glue them on the middle of the dinosaur's body.
Place the dinosaur feet on the bottom of the dinosaur and glue them on . Keep a 1 inch gap in between the two feet.
To finish this dinosaur craft for kids, glue two googly eyes to the head. I like using two different sized eyes as they make the dinosaur look a little kooky. Feel free to use eyes that are the same size if you prefer.
Don't forget to add a smile! You can use a pencil or marker to draw a smile on the dinosaur's face.
Now, THAT is a happy dino! Kids will have lots of creative ideas on playing with their very own dinosaurs.
