Do the Dinosaur Stomp with the #TBCCrafters!

Say it Rah-shay By Sep 26, 2013 5 Comments


Over the summer I commandeered an old book cart which I used to keep track of the books and materials for summer programs. I never quite gave it up and now use it to help me keep track of the books and things I need for upcoming programs or crafts at the library. The book cart sits next to my desk and I wanted to add some flare to it, I mean flare other than the note asking people not to take anything off of the cart. (I really am not a mean library chick but people would see my books and randomly pull them off and forget to put them back and then storytime would happen and I would not be prepared.)

Anywho, I found this adorable Build a Dinosaur craft from Little Family Fun. It also happens that Jane Yolen and Mark Teague have a new addition to their popular “How Do Dinosaurs” (the newest book is How Do Dinosaurs Say I’m Mad?”) series and a new station was born in t he library.


  • Foam pieces in different shapes OR
  • Foam sheets (needed to create the twenty shapes)
  • Magnets
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors


If using foam pieces, find the shapes you need.

If using the sheet of foam cut out the following (these pieces were suggested from Little Family Fun)

  • 1 big half-circle
  • 1 medium triangle
  • 1 medium square
  • 1 medium circle
  • 3 small rectangles
  • 3 small long triangles
  • 3 small squares
  • 4 small triangles
  • 3 small circles

After gathering all of the pieces, glue a small magnet to the back of each piece.

Place on a metal surface and make your dinosaur!
