Who doesn’t like dinosaurs? Girls and boys of all ages love dinosaurs. In How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? by Jane Yolen human parents are trying to put young dinosaurs to bed. The dinosaurs in the book represent human children throwing temper tantrums when it’s time to go to bed. Do yourself a favor and borrow this from the library or buy it for your Nanny Kids by clicking the links above and below.

Make Dinosaur Feet
You Will Need:

2 Tissue Boxes
Colorful Tissue Paper
Safety Scissors
Paint Brush
Disposable Cup

What to Do:

1. Prepare by protecting the work surface and gathering supplies. Cut zigzags out of felt. Put glue in a disposable cup.

2. Let the kids rip or cut up pieces of colorful tissue paper. Allow them to decorate the tissue boxes using a paint brush dipped in glue to secure tissue paper to the tissue boxes.

3. Help the kids attach the felt to the front of the tissue boxes as claws.

4. Once dry, crumble up newspaper and stuff enough into the tissue boxes to help the child’s feet fit securely in their dinosaur shoes.
