Crafty Kid Crafts – Dinosaurs Activity!

This post is sponsored by Oriental Trading Company, but please note all ideas and opinions are my own.

I’d been looking to do another craft project with Sadie since our Secret Pizza Party and was super excited to partner with Oriental Trading for this one!

One of Sadie’s favorite shows on Netflix is Dinotrux! So when I was looking through all the different things Oriental Trading offered I knew I had the perfect fit when I spotted these DIY Dinosaur Masks!

We already had basic things like markers and glue in the house and I found a bunch of googly eyes in our craft box. But I knew to make the dinosaur masks special I’d have to jazz things up a bit so I added the following to my Oriental Trading cart:

Much like the way I let Sadie know we were doing the Secret Pizza Party project, I wanted to do something special for our Dinosaur Activity. Oriental Trading had these awesome Dino-Mite Footprint Floor Decals, and so on a day I was home before Sadie I put them in a pattern leading from our front door to the dining room table where I had all of our craft supplies laid out. (P.S. These stick REALLY well to floors, but not so much to carpet!)

Before we kicked off creating our dinosaur masks I thought having a dinosaur dig would be fun! Oriental Trading also had these little Dinosaur Dig Kits and I put one down with Sadie and told her we could dig for dinosaur bones! She loved it but definitely had some trouble scraping away at the hardened sand so Dave and I handled that part while she used the brush to clean up the bones we found.

Then it was onto our dinosaur masks! We had so much fun decorating these masks with all different colors, pom-poms, glitter and feathers.

And voila – our finished dinosaurs! As you can see, Sadie went for a minimalist look. She also didn’t want to put hers together to make the hat – she wanted to bring it in for her teacher, so that’s what we did.

This was a really fun project! I’m already brainstorming our next one.

  1. Could y’all be any cuter?!!! I love love love this! And now I need those dino crowns! My kids love Dinotrux too. (and now the song is going to be stuck in my head all day)

    • Thanks!! If they were smaller to ship I’d send some your way! Sadie is getting two Dinotrux toys for Christmas/Hanukkah but friggen Ty Rux is sold out everywhere! It’s my holiday mission to find one haha.

  2. Too much fun! Oriental Trading has the coolest stuff. I used to order through them all the time when I taught a Sunday school class.
