Make your own dinosaur out of a bowl!
What to do:
Gather together all the things that you need to make the Bowl Dinosaur. Take the newspaper and roll it into a small dumpy sausage shape. You don't have to be too neat. Then stick it together with some sticky tape. Make sure you have permission from an adult to use the plastic bowl. Place the rolled up newspaper in the bowl to make the first leg, then repeat three more times so the dinosaur has 4 legs. Make sure the legs are the same size so that the dinosaur stands up. Now stick all of the legs to the bowl in a square.
To make the dinosaur's tail take another sheet of newspaper and roll it up like before. Twist the end a little so it's a bit thinner and then stick it together with some sticky tape. Now stick this to the bowl. To make the dinosaur's neck take another piece of newspaper and roll it up as before. Now bend the end over and then over again to make it a bit thicker, as this will be the head. Now stick it all together using sticky tape and then stick it on to the front of the bowl, again using sticky tape.
Mix some gloopy glue with a drop of water so it is runny like custard. Then paint a layer of this over the dinosaur and stick some pieces of ripped up kitchen roll on to it. Leave to dry.
Now paint the dinosaur. You can use whatever colour you like. When the paint is dry you need to stick on the googly eyes.
You can make different types of Bowl Dinosaurs.
You will need:
- An old plastic bowl
- An old newspaper
- Sticky tape
- Some PVA glue
- Some paint
- Kitchen rolls
- Googly eyes (you can get these from an arts and crafts shop)
