Dinosaur crafty fun with clay!!

The theme at Mister B’s museum group this week was dinosaurs, which he was rather excited about.  We started by looked at some old dinosaur fossils and feeling their textures before getting on to the messy task of clay!

Unfortunately Mister B prefered to prod the ball of clay with the plastic crafting tools rather than get his fingers stuck in and then ordered mummy do create the body of his dinosaur  although he did eventually join in adding bits along the back and to the tail.  Then he used his tools to add some texture to the side of the dinosaur.

We were given a black and white picture of a dinosaur head which Mister B loved colouring in and after sticking it to a lollipop stick we poked it into the neck of the dinosaur to finish it off.


While we left the dinosaurs to dry we played with some dinosaur themed toys.  Mister B really enjoyed the dinosaur puzzles which he completed all on his own.  He’s never had much interest in puzzles up to now but seems to have suddenly found a real fondness for them which is great for his hand eye coordination and we have plenty at home for him to practice with.

Another fun filled week at the museum over and one happy little boy proudly carrying his finished masterpiece out the door of the museum and down the road!!

    Great idea! I haven’t used clay for years. Much better than plastercine as you can keep it in shape. Aww you little man looks chuffed with his masterpiece!

      He loves it as he is quite into dinosaurs at the moment. And being clay we have kept it and it sits on our kitchen windowsill – lovely to see it everyday!
