Music for Crafting

After some digging around (dino pun), here is the perfect song for this DIY project. 

Artist: Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers
Fun Disney Fact: this song is featured as part of the area music in the Dino-Rama section of Dinoland U.S.A. in Walt Disney World's Animal Kingdom. Enjoy!

Let's Get Crafting! 

Cut out all dinosaur template pieces. Using the dino body and dino mouth, trace onto colorful cardstock and cut those pieces out. 

Using the teeth from the dinosaur template, attach one set to the inside of the dino mouth piece.

Then attach the second set of teeth to the top of your dinosaur's mouth. 

Attach the bottom of the dinosaur mouth to the bottom of you clothespin with glue. Try to get the mouth as far out to the edge of the clothespin as possible. 

Now attach the head of the dinosaur to the top of the clothespin, lining up the top and bottom of the mouth. 

Add a googly eyeball to your dinosaur to complete your face. DONE!
