I read about making a simple dinosaur costume using paper plates. It was really fast, it took like 10 minutes tops. (not including any kind of painting or coloring)
This is what is looked like.......
Pretty easy, right?
This is how we made it....
Folded the paper plates in half and stapled them together.
For the last plate we stapled it on 3 times and then pulled the 2 sides of the plate over so that it looks like flaps. Added the holes for the pipe cleaner and put the pipe cleaner on for the straps. I prefer pipe cleaner over yarn because I feel it is more adjustable and will stay in that position longer.
Watch out for dangerous dinosaur attacks!
