We work to plan activities around our toddlers interests, and currently she likes dinosaurs. She loves dinosaurs on tv, at the natural history muesum, and in books. This open ended shape dinosaur will let your little one express their creativity and create their very own dinosaur!
Construction Paper (We just used two pieces, but you could use more if you wanted to)
Googly Eyes (Optional)
We started by cutting out shapes. If your little one is over 4, try letting them cut out the shapes! It is great fine motor skill practice. Our little one is too small to use scissors, so we did it for her.
Next, just let your little one build the dinosaur. Younger little ones may need some guidance, but older children can take the lead. We took some time to talk about each shape as we handed her them to glue down.
The last part we did is completely optional. We gave our little dino a face by adding googly eyes and drawing on a smile.
