How adorable is this paper plate triceratops craft? They might actually be one of my favourite crafts that we have ever made! We were inspired to make a dinosaur craft after learning about some dinosaurs from National Geographic’s ultimate dino-pedia book. My little guy loves looking looking at the pictures and learning facts about all the different dinosaurs and this little craft seemed like a fun way to extend the activity. My dino mad son loves his little triceratops’ and has them proudly displayed on his wall. We had so much fun making these little guys and they were just so simple and easy to make too, perfect for my preschool age boy.

Here’s what we used

How to make our paper plate triceratops craft

If you are not using coloured paper plates you’ll want to start off by painting your paper plate and leaving it to dry. Once dry, take some coloured paper and cut out some semi-circles. Glue them half way around your paper plate to make your Triceratops’ frill.

Next give your triceratops two eyes. We used a white circle, a coloured circle and black circle and stuck them together to make ours.

Then, cut out a rounded triangle for the beak and glue it down just below your triceratops’ eyes.

Finish off by cutting out two curved horns and one straight one. Glue the curved horns on either side of the top of the head and then the straight one in the centre of the beak as you can see above. Your paper plate triceratops is finished! How adorable are they? Totally roarsome!
