Create your own prehistoric dinosaur scene in a box. Just print out the dinosaurs, paste, color, cut, arrange them in the box, and - welcome to the Mesozoic Era, the “Age of Dinosaurs.”
- Paper and a printer (stiff paper works best - colored paper is great)
- Shoe box or slightly larger box
- Crayons and/or markers
- Paste (a glue stick works well)
- Tape, thread, pipe cleaners
- Optional – glitter (for great lava!)
- Optional – Cotton puffs (for clouds)
- Optional – Thin cardboard to glue to the back of the animals if the paper is very flimsy (old cereal boxes work well)
