its gettin PREHISTORIC in here!

little miss chloe had a 2nd grade project this weekend...
construct a DINOSAUR out of household objects...
easy enough... right???
maybe for some.. but i was sweatin it..
wondering how we were gonna throw this thing together
and make it turn out decent...
i mean.. scrapbooking/stamping.. yes i can do that...easy peasy...
but a creative dinosaur out of nothing... hmm..
more of a challenge for me...
thank goodness for DADDY. (who made an awesome head!)
and KYLE (who did the legs).
with their help..
i think this TRICERATOPS
turned out pretty sweet!
(and its a GIRLY one if you couldn't tell.. )
have a great TUESDAY!

That is the coolest homemade triceratops I've ever seen! I'm a frequent blog visitor, but don't think I've ever commented. I love your blog and your projects are great. I bet your DD has the BEST dino at school!

Thanks ladies! It was actually pretty fun to make.. we used an oatmeal container for the body, frosting containers for the legs, craft foam for the neck 'frill' thingy and tin foil for the face, tail and horns. We hot glued the whole thing together then covered it with paper mache. When that was dry, we spray painted it with a brown stone texture and added the details. :)

Probably the funniest part about it... is that the dino is not even due until NEXT Tuesday... so we had another whole week to work on it.. I read the assignment wrong.. oh well! at least its finished.
