Maker Monday: Dino Skeletons
Junior paleontologists will have fun constructing Dino Skeletons in this week’s Maker Monday activity.
Combine a trip to the Carnegie Museum of Natural History for a bit of research or click onto the museum’s website to get a look at the real-life dino bones.
We know how much kids love dinosaurs. With the latest blockbuster in the “Jurassic Park” series opening, dino fever is likely to reach new heights. These “fossils” will be a great addition to their dinosaur collection.
Draw a silhouette of one of your favorite dinosaurs. To make things a little easier for smaller kids, we used scrap paper to make dino forms that can be easily traced.
Cut out the dino shape.
Use the cotton swabs to build the dino skeleton, trimming to size, as needed. Glue onto the dino silhouette. Don’t worry about messy glue. It will dry clear.
