Brontosaurus was a super tall, plant-eating dinosaur also known as Apatosaurus. Do you know another word that means plant eater? That’s right, it’s herbivore.
Let’s make a brontosaurus and sing 10 Little Dinosaurs together!
Things you’ll need
- Green construction paper
- Paper plate
- 2 cardboard tubes
- 2 shades of green craft paint
- Paint brush
- Glue stick
- Black marker
- Cotton swab and cotton ball
- Googly eyes
Paint the underside of your paper plate with one shade of green. Let it dry.
Paint both of your cardboard tubes with the other shade of green paint. Let them dry as well.
Draw your Brontosaurus head, neck and tail on your sheet of green construction paper and cut out the shapes.
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.
You can add a bit of glue and stick the paper plate body, head and tail together.
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.
