How to Make a Hatching Dinosaur Paper Craft
What you need:
- pale green cardstock (or any color of your choice)
- brown cardstock
- dark blue color paper
- light blue color paper
- black marker
- split pin
- paper eyes
Step by Step Tutorial
On the green cardstock, draw an egg shape.
We provided dimensions so you can see how big the egg shape is.
Cut out the egg shape.
Take the pencil and draw a crack in the middle of the egg.
Cut through the crack and divide the egg in half.
Attach the halves together with a split pin.
Check if the egg opens and closes right.
On the brown cardstock, draw some oval shapes and some circles.
They should not be perfect ones.
Cut out the oval shapes and the circles.
Glue them on the egg as shown.
Cut out the excess brown paper sticking out of the egg.
Great, you just made the mechanism work!
On the dark blue color, paper draw a dinosaur shape.
Cut it out with your scissors.
Trace the head and the muzzle of the dinosaur on the light blue color paper and add some spikes on the head.
Here you can see the traced parts more clearly.
Cut out the head with the spikes and cut out the muzzle too.
Glue them on the dinosaur shape.
You should glue the head part to the backside of the dino. Make sure to glue the muzzle at the front side of the dinosaur.
Glue the paper eyes on.
Draw two nostrils on the muzzle with the black marker.
Draw a tiny circle mouth too.
Glue the dinosaur inside the egg.
The only parts sticking out should be the head and the muzzle.
Each time we open the egg, we get really happy.
We noticed that these projects always bring smiles to our faces and brighten our days up.
Hope you guys love them too and hope they fill your days with joy.
Isn’t it cute?
That is all for today.
