Once the paper plate is dry, fold it in half and cut two 2 inch seams along the outer edges. This is where you will slide the tail and head into place.

Once your cardboard tubes are dry, flatten out one end of each tube. Next, cut an arch at the top of each leg and some small 1 inch slits on either side. You can now slide the legs onto the bottom of the paper plate.

Now it’s time to add some spots! Dab your cotton ball and cotton swab in some paint to stamp some spots of two different sizes. Glue on the eyes and draw a little smile with your black marker. All done!

TIP: Since the Brontosaurus has such a long neck, you can glue a popsicle stick to the back to make sure it stays in place.
