In the last blog article we listed some Fun Facts about the T-Rex. We also had a free download of a T-Rex coloring page for the kids (or you) to color. In this blog we want to share some of our favorite craft activities that we found on the web that are simple and fun to do. There was so much to choose from – it was hard to make a decision!
What a fun craft this is! It is more for older kids (around 5) since it gets a little intricate towards the end. But the little ones could do the fun messy painting and someone older could finish it. It is made with cardboard, paint (or crayons), glue and yarn. The template is available from DLTK’s Crafts for Kids.
These easy to make dinosaur feet are perfect for toddlers to stomp around in and pretend to be dinosaurs. They are made from empty tissue boxes. We found the craft at Rainy Day Mum.
Dinosaur Shadow Puppets! Another great craft from Rainy Day Mum. She gives complete easy instructions for kids to make and how to use shadow puppets.
Have some spare paper lunch bags laying around? Then get ready to turn them into some T-Rex puppets. Use our free T-Rex paper bag puppet pattern designed by The Tucson Puppet Lady herself! It’s a great activity for the kids to color, cut out, glue and then play with.
Need a puppet with a moving mouth and makes expressions? We’ve got the pattern!
And if you are really bitten by the craft bug, you can use our T-Rex Puppet Sewing Pattern to make your own puppet. It is available as a digital download so you can start sewing immediately. We recommend using fleece and felt fabrics because they are inexpensive and readily available from craft stores. Customers tell us how easy our step by step patterns (with lots of pictures) are to follow especially after watching the video tutorials. In fact you can watch our free video tutorial on how to sew the T-Rex puppet right now!
what our customers are saying:
“I love her patterns. Pattern well written and easy to follow.”
“I love how the puppet turned out. Please keep the patterns coming!”
NEXT BLOG FEATURES BOOKS AND FREE PUPPET PATTERN
In our next blog, we’ll be sharing a few books which feature the T-Rex that preschoolers (and older kids) enjoy. The books range from fact to fiction. We’ll also have a free pattern download for a free T-Rex hand puppet. You don’t even have to know how to sew, the whole puppet can be made using a hot glue gun. Stay tuned to our blog to get your free download.
