3D Collage dinosaurs kids art project

The inspiration for this project came from the awesome LITTLE GINGER STUDIO in Randwick, Sydney. They run fantastic children's art & craft classes as well as selling craft kits.

We love collage craft projects as they are easy to set up and you can use up all your olds scraps of paper and artwork to make something new. These 3D COLLAGE DINOSAURS are extra fun, by adding the legs so they stand up, it allows you to play with the dinosaurs after you have finished making them.

Before we get into the making, I wanted to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for visiting MINI MAD THINGS. All the crafts I share here on the blog are pretty much just made for the love of making things with my children. Even if I didn't have a craft blog, we would still be happily making together around our kitchen table. It is just the icing on the cake that I can share our ideas with YOU through our website and INSTAGRAM page. I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have a business that I'm truly passionate about. So next time you are looking for a creative, thoughtful and eco-friendly gift for the little people in your life, it would be totally awesome if you could keep our range of fun kids CRAFT KITS, ART BOOKS and ECO ART SUPPLIES in mind. You can see our full range of MINI MAD THINGS products HERE.

Begin by cutting out the dinosaur body and leg shapes from the cardboard, we used a craft knife to cut ours out. Cut slots in the legs and body of the dinosaurs so you can attach the legs. Prepare all your collage materials by cutting up coloured paper, old artwork or fabric. Now begin gluing and decorate your dinosaurs. In our art supplies SHOP we stock a fantastic non-toxic, starch based kids craft glue perfect for sticking paper and cardboard.

Try making a whole herd of dinosaurs to play with!
