Children can begin by painting the dinosaur template using paint, color pencils, or crayons. Remember to paint all the parts except for the eyes of both the lowercase and uppercase versions of the dinosaur! They can get really creative by trying different colors for their dinosaurs.
While the paint is drying, get two popsicle sticks and paint them. We painted one blue to match our little dino and the other green to match our big dino.
Once the paint is dry, cut out all the parts from the template. Kids can now arrange the parts of the lowercase Dino and uppercase dino separately.
We used blue color for the small dino and green color for the big dino.
