She decided her t-rex needed a leash, so we broke out the yarn.
Our t-rex happens to be a girl, of course, complete with blue eyes, eyelashes, and a bow on her head and tail. Takes some of the fierceness out the the creatures, for sure!
Our next activity was similar, but this time we stuffed a two sided t-rex. I'm so sorry, but I don't remember the website I printed the template from to give proper credit, but if I stumble upon it again I will add a link. We printed two pictures, cut them out and stapled them together leaving a small opening for stuffing. My daughter stuffed the dino with cotton balls and then stapled the opening shut. Here's the process:
And the finished product! Slightly less girly, but still with the blue eyes. :)
And the dinosaur face off!
Finally, to round out the day, we played this Build a Dinosaur activity on the Scholastic website. Until our next prehistoric adventure...
