In the last blog article we listed some Fun Facts about triceratops. We also had a free download of an triceratops coloring page for the kids (or you) to color. In this blog we want to share our favorite craft activities that we found on the web that are simple and fun to do.
We found this triceratops handprint on Pinterest. Wish we could find more information about where it came from because it is just beautiful. Looks like the handprint was turned upside down with the thumb for a tail and a head painted on. The background makes it so artistic.
This triceratops is made using popsicle sticks and other materials usually found around the house. Kids love paint, glue and googly eyes and this craft has all three! We found this at I Heart Arts N Crafts.
These adorable little triceratops from Still Playing School are made from recycled egg cartons with cupcake liners. Kids get to paint, glue and play with googly eyes. We love the bright colors!
This triceratops craft is similar to the one above, but uses the styrofoam egg cartons. It gives the craft a totally different look. From That Kids Craft Site.
Have some spare paper lunch bags laying around? Then get ready to turn them into some triceratops puppets. Use our free triceratops 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 have the pattern!
And if you are really bitten by the craft bug, you can use our Triceratops 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 triceratops 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 triceratops that preschoolers (and older kids) enjoy. The books range from fact to fiction. We’ll also have a free pattern download for a felt triceratops 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.
