1. Paint the plate a colour of your choice.
2. Draw the sections on the back of the paper plate like in the image: body, legs, tail, neck and head. Cut the sections out.
3. Attach the dinosaur’s body parts with glue (staples also work well)
4. Open the paper clips in an L shape and attach one side to the back of each leg to make the dinosaur stand up.
