There are lots of versions of this in my house (!) – this is my favourite
How to make – paper plates cut in half. You can easily cut the dinosaur spikes/plates a few plates at a time. Older children who can safely use scissors can do this part themselves.
Each dinosaur needs a tail and a head – there is a free printable here – Dinosaur Head and Tail (1) Colour these and then attach with glue.
Decorate the dinosaur with tissue paper, crayon, pens – whatever suits you. I like to give children a choice.
Decorate the pegs and attach. The dinosaur should stand up!
To make these pictures I started with a roll of paper from Ikea and drew a road. The buildings and trees were added. As you tell the story you can add all the things you need. The cloaks were cut from material, the donkey has pegs for legs.
The people were copied from this book Their God is so Big by Stephanie Carmichael. It’s on offer at the moment!
The donkey with pegs for legs would make a good craft. help yourself to the free printables.
to add something to the telling of the Christmas story – add sheep and camels that stand up on pegs for legs.
Draw a simple camel or sheep (without legs!) on to card and cut out. Add the pegs.
You could also do this as a craft activity – just be careful with the pegs.
