Let’s make a stegosaurus together and learn everything we can about dinosaurs.

Paint both of your cardboard tubes with the other shade of green paint. Let them dry as well. 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.
