First, sketch out a dinosaur on a piece of black construction paper. If you need to, you can print up a dinosaur silhouette and cut it out. Then, trace that cut out on your construction paper.  

Then, cut out the dinosaur from the construction paper. 

Next, add lines of glue to the dinosaur. 

Finally, use q-tips as bones and create a dinosaur skeleton on the cut out construction paper dino. You may need to cut the q-tips in half to fit on the dinosaur.

We were not fully anatomically correct when we made this dinosaur. But I did share some of our photos from the Smithsonian’s dinosaur exhibit with my cousin so he could show his daughter. My cousin also bought a book that shares maps where dinosaur fossils have been found all over the world. I think he is planning a trip to South Dakota with her soon so he can show her some of the dinosaur fossils found in America.
