Welcome to stART! I hope that you will enjoy our story and art project and maybe even share your own too. All I ask is that you link back to A Mommy’s Adventures somewhere in your post so that others can see all the other great projects that everyone shares too! The linky will be open all week.
Check out the stART tab in my navigation bar where you can find our past stART projects. All the books that we have read and did a stART project for are listed in alphabetical order.
This week we read Dinorella, by Pamela Duncan Edwards. This is Prehistoric Dinosaur version of the fairy tale Cinderella. It is a great example of alliteration and would compliment any dinosaur or D themed study! Emily enjoyed this book and was very excited to make her own Dinorella after we finished reading this story.
I thought that it would be fun to make a paper plate dinosaur and after reading this book I knew exactly what we were going to do…make some adorable Dinorella Paper Plate Dinosaurs all dressed up and ready for the Dance.
First Emily used a Do-a-Dot paint marker to dot a paper plate pink.
Next, she cut all the way around the inside of a paper plate.
From the edge piece she cut 4 leg pieces. Then she cut the leftover piece in half. To use one half for the head and the other for the tail. I shaped both of these pieces to better resemble a head and tail for her.
Emily glued the pieces together to look like a dinosaur.
Now for the really fun part…dressing up Dinorella!!!
Emily added white pieces of white tulle for the dress and black foam for the top. Then she glued on Sequins & Spangles for the diamond necklace and earrings. She used yellow dot stickers for the hair and a wiggly eye.
