Supplies Needed To Make a Dinosaur Handprint
How to Make a Dinosaur Handprint
1. Fold over a piece of cardstock and trace the handprint.
Trace the handprint so that the pinky is on the folded part (the thumb will be the dinosaur tail).
The card should now open up like this:
2. Print off our dinosaur handprint template.
Use the head template to trace on the same colored cardstock as the handprint and cut it out.
Then draw the eyes and mouth with a black marker.
3. Add pink cheek marks.
Dip the back of a paintbrush or pencil into pink paint and dab onto the face to make a pink cheek mark.
4. Cut out 3 circles for the dinosaur body.
Use our template or create your own circles. Cut them out and glue to the dinosaur body. We used a different color for each dinosaur.
5. Cut out the dinosaur spikes.
Use our template or create your own spikes. Glue to the back of the handprint at the top of the dinosaur.
6. Write a message inside the card.
Write one of our dinosaur messages inside the card or make up your own!
These cards are the perfect card to make for any dinosaur fan!
