  1. How to throw the best dino-themed party ever
  2. First- some dinosaur  Did facts! you know? Triceratops and T-Rex shared the same home – the forest of North America 65 million years ago. This would mean that the T-Rex may have preyed on the triceratops although, with their horned head, the triceratops would have put up a big fight.
  3. 1. Look the part with T-REX FEET!  If you are stuck, ask an adult to help you, especially with the glue and cutting.  What you’ll need:  tissue boxes  duct tape  paint  kitchen sponge  Wood glue/glue paste
  4. Instructions  1. Your tissue boxes must be empty.  2. Use duct tape to reduce the size of the opening and to reinforce the ankle area, seen below.  3. Cover the exposed duct tape inside the box with more tape.  4. Paint the boxes in any way you like! But remember to let them dry.  5. Cut 6 claws from a kitchen sponge and make them triangles. Wet the sponge to make it easy for you to cut!
  5. Dino-Fact Time  Did you know? Along with Stegosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex was one of three dinosaurs that inspired the Godzilla Movie.
  6. Fossil cookies- because you have to snack too.  Ingredients:  1 cup walnuts, toasted  2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting  Salt  2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature  3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons icing’ sugar  1 tsp pure vanilla extract  Insects and dinosaur plastic figurines
  7. How to make them:       Grind the nuts in a food processor until they are fine. Then put them in a bowl and use a whisk to mix in the flour and ½ tsp of salt. Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla with a mixer on high speed until it looks pale and fluffy. Then beat the mixture on a low speed. Add the walnuts. Make balls out of the dough. They should be about 4 cm big. Then press them into stone shapes with your palms. It’s okay if they look weird, stones are not perfect! Then place them on a lined baking sheet. Dust the figurines in flour and use them to make fossil shapes in the dough. Freeze the dough for 20-30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Once hot, put the cookies in the oven for half an hour and let them bake until they look golden brown. Then put them a wire rack to cool down. Now they are ready to be eaten.
  8. Dino-Fact Time  Did you know? The only way we have of learning about dinosaurs is by studying fossils. Fossils are the remains of ancient animals and plants, the impressions of living thing from past eras. With fossils, we can even see what they were doing! Fossils have been found on every content on Earth.
  9. Stegosaurus Puppet Show  With all the information you have learned about dinosaurs, why not hold your very own dinosaur puppet show? You could even get someone to record it for you on video and post it up on Youtube.  You and your friends can split into groups and create your own shows and perform them for each other. Before you start scribbling down ideas, here is how to make your own stegosaurus dinosaur puppet.  What you’ll need:  Socks of any colours or patterns you like  Googly eyes, you can get these from sewing shops  Red and black felt fabric  Different coloured pieces of felt  Scissors  Glue  Drinking glass
  10. Instructions  Put the sock on your hand and wiggle it around so you can make the dino’s mouth with your thumb.  Cut a piece of red felt in a triangle and make that the tongue. Glue it in place.  Glue the eyes on the sock on the top of your hand.  Cut out to small circles of the black felt to make the nose. Put the nose just below the eyes.  Cut out triangles of any colour felt you like to make spikes for your dinosaur. You will need 2 triangles for each spike. Glue the tops of the triangle together and leave the bottom part open. This will allow you to glue the spike on the sock so it doesn’t fall down.  Put some glue on the part of the sock where you want the spike to go and then press the spike into place. Repeat until you feel your dinosaur has enough spectacular spikes.  Cut a bit of the top of your sock to make 2 arms for your dinosaur. Shape the arms and glue them on each side of the sock.  Let the glue on the dinosaur dry by placing him/her over the glass to dry.
  11. One more fact and then it is partytime!  The Stegosaurus’ brain was the size of a walnut! And scientists believe this herbivore swallowed rocks to help mash up food it ate hundreds of kilograms of tough plants a day!
