How cute are these little Triceratops dinosaur corner bookmarks? My son is mad about dinos but we always find it hard to come up with dinosaur themed crafts. So we were pretty pleased with these little guys. I’ve even found that my son is more interested in reading his books too – simply because he wants to use his new bookmarks!
You will need
Coloured crafting paper
Sticker eyes (optional)
First you’ll need to start by folding your bookmark. If you haven’t made one before you can find an easy photo guide here.
To make the frill, cut out some semi circles and glue them along the inside of your bookmark. You should need between 4 and 6 depending on how big you cut them.
Cut out a rounded yellow triangle for the beak and glue it down on the outer point of your bookmark. Then, give your triceratops two eyes. We used eye stickers but if you don’t have these you could cut out two white paper circles and draw the details on – or just draw them straight on to your bookmark!
Finish off your triceratops by adding a curved horn to each side of his head and a straight horn to the upper edge of the beak. Once dry, your super roarsome triceratops bookmark is finished and ready to be used!
If you've followed the blog at all you will know that my son is mad about all things under the sea. He loves learning about the ocean environment and its inhabitants though his books and we read some of national geographic kids ultimate oceanpedia almost every single day. He loves watching documentaries together too and more often than not hes the one teaching me something new! It was actually him who gave me the idea for this cute paper plate jellyfish
Today I'm back again with another pipe cleaner craft! We had so much fun making these yesterday and came up with some really fun little ideas. I think though that these pipe cleaner snail magnets are my favourite of the day. They're just so adorable and once you get the hang of them they're really easy to make too. We have a whole garden full of them on our fridge right now!
How sweet are these little pipe cleaner apple magnets? It took us a couple of tries to perfect them but now weve got them figured and wanted to share them with you all! In fact, we've got so good at making them that it only takes us a few minutes on each. My son recently Made some sweet apple and worm cards for his teachers as due to current situation he wont be going back to school this year and he wanted to make extra to gift them too. Such a sweet little idea!
