What You’ll Need

• colored paper
What You’ll Do
Start by printing out the D is for Dinosaur craft template. If you want your kids to color the project, print the template on white paper. If they don’t enjoy coloring, you can print the template on colored paper. Use several colored pages if they want a colorful dinosaur.
Have your child cut out the template pieces. Glue the Letter D onto a sheet of construction paper. Then, add the head, tail, legs, and spikes to form a dinosaur.
Take time to discuss the formation of the letter D and its beginning sound. Can your preschooler name other things that begin with the letter D?
Once the dinosaur is fully assembled, let your preschoolers decorate their dinosaur with crayons, markers, paint, or dot markers. Let them be as creative as they want as they create a one-of-a-kind dinosaur of their own.
