How to Make A Spatula Painted Dinosaur

  1. Dip Your Spatula

    Pour your green paint into a paper plate. Grab your spatula and dip it into the paint so that the entire surface is covered. Use it to stamp the middle of the page with the rounded part on top and the flat part on the bottom.

  2. Add Head, Tail, and Feet.

    Use the scissors to cut out a head and neck, tail and legs for the dinosaur. Glue them to the body of the dinosaur using the glue.

  3. Add a smile and eye.

    Draw a mouth on the dinosaur using the black sharpie and attached the googley using the glue.

  4. Add Spikes!

    Pour a small amount of brown washable paint on to the paper plate. Use your finger to print spines on the back of the dinosaur!

  5. Set out to dry

    Set your dinosaur out to dry! Once dry hang it on your fridge or wall!
