Toilet roll pterodactyl craft for kids

This little toilet roll pterodactyl craft is so sweet and easy to make!

My little boy has always been really interested in dinosaurs. In his toy box he probably has a bigger selection than jurassic world does. We’ve been collecting them from all over the place since he was really small, Some are new but many are ones that we have picked up in charity shops or at second hand sales. When it comes to dinosaur crafts though we have always struggled – they aren’t the easiest thing to Make! Today my little boy wanted to make some pterodactyls to hang up on his bedroom ceiling so we gave it a whirl and came up with these cuties! We think they look great, what do you think?

Here’s what we used

  • Empty Toilet rolls
  • Coloured and white card
  • Paint and paintbrushes
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Black marker

How to make this toilet roll pterodactyl craft

Start by taking your empty toilet roll and coating it in your chosen colour of paint. Whilst your toilet roll is aside drying, take your coloured card and cut out a diamond shape for the face.

Cut out and glue on two eyes and a triangle beak (we cut out a diamond and folded in half so that the mouth can open and shut!). Glue the pterodactyls’s face on to the toilet roll body

Fold a piece of coloured paper in half and draw a wing shape on to it starting at the fold line. Cut out the wings and glue them centrally on the back of the toilet roll.
