Dinosaur Painting Footprint Process Art for Kids

Dinosaurs are always a big hit for little ones. In fact, my kids were bigger when we were able to take them to The Smithsonian, and they spent more time looking at the dinosaurs than any other exhibit. When my boys were crabby toddlers we would take out one of their favorite toys and use it to paint with. They loved painting car tracks, and dinosaur prints. And, this Footprint Dinosaur Painting is so simple, anyone can do it!

Dinosaur Footprint Painting Craft for Preschoolers

Dinosaur Preschool Craft Project Supplies:

  • Sheet of construction paper.
  • Paint.
  • Dinosaur toy.
  • Optional – dish soap.

This project is great for rainy days, dinosaur lessons, and even homemade art. It would also be a great time to teach short lessons about dinosaurs. I used a Parasaurolophus toy to make our footprint art project. Fossils from these herbivores have been found in North America from New Mexico to Alberta! They are believed to have been about 31 feet long and over 2.5 tons!

Let’s get started! When I would let my little ones paint with their toys, I would add a few drops of liquid dish soap to the paint. This made clean up so much easier!

Add a small amount of paint in your desired color to a paper plate or paint palette. Then, add a few drops of dish soap and mix it together well.

Then, dip your dinosaur’s feet in to the paint. Be sure to dab off the excess paint on the plate or paint palette before you press the feet onto the paper.

Repeat as often as you would like to create your masterpiece!
