To continue our focus on dinosaurs and the letter D we made dinosaur dioramas. The great thing about this project is that you can make it as simple or as complex as you want to. We kept it simple, but I was starting to think of all the things we could have added to it: eggs, nests, food, trees, etc. Anyway, simple or complex, this was definitely a student favorite.
Here's What You Need:
- Cracker or shoe boxes
- Spray paint
- Tempera paint
- Duct tape
- Easter grass
- Fake leaves or vines
- Hot glue gun
- Plastic dinosaurs
Here's What You Do:
- Cut off the front of your box and reinforce the sides with duct tape.
- Spray paint the outside. (Tempera paint doesn't work well because of the glossy finish.)
- Have the kids paint the inside.
- Use the hot glue gun to glue down the easter grass on the bottom and the leaves or vines.
- Hot glue some rocks down for the dinosaurs to climb on. (This is actually an important part because the rocks help weigh down and stabilize the front.)
- Let the kids add their dinosaur and play!
