Pteranodon Milk Jug Craft for Kids Diagram www.daniellesplace.comWhat you will need:

Two plastic milk jugs, sharp pointy scissors, tape, dry erase marker, printer paper, fine sand paper, hot melt glue gun, low temp. glue sticks, and acrylic paint

How to Make The Milk Jug Pteranodon Craft:

Pteranondon Milk Jug Craft for Kids www.daniellesplace.com1. Carefully peel off the labels on the front of the milk jugs. Wash out the insides of the jugs and let them dry.

2. Print out the Pteranodon Wing Pattern (PDF Pattern) and cut it out.

3. Tape the wing pattern on one of the milk jugs so that the straight edge of the wing matches up with the line running down from the center of the handle of the jug as shown in the diagram at the left.

4. Use a dry erase marker to trace around the wing pattern and feet.

4. Turn the pattern over and match it up to the center line again to make the other wing. Trace around it again. The handle of the milk carton is the pteranodon's neck. The wings should go behind the milk jug handle or the bottom of the neck.

5. Draw the rectangle shape above the wings as shown in the diagram to the left. The rectangle should connect under the top of the handle as shown in the diagram.

6. Cut the pteranodon out, but don't cut all the way through where the top of the wings meets the neck. Cut all the way through the top of the handle and all the way through under the top of the handle. You should have a rectangle peace on the top of the wings only connected by a 1/4" of an inch at the base of the neck.

7. Fold the rectangle piece back under the pteranodon's body and roll it up so that it forms a cylinder shape under the body as shown in the diagram at the left. Use a glue gun to glue the cylinder in place. A children can stick their fingers in the cylinder to hold the pteranodon.

8. The head is made out of the second milk jug. Use the diagram to the right as your guide. The beak of the bird is part of the handle. Cut the lower beak a little shorter than the top beak. Use a glue gun at low temperature to glue the head to the body.

9. Use a paper towel to wipe off the dry erase marker. Use fine sand paper to rough up the entire surface of the pteranodon so that the paint will stick better.

10. Use acrylic paint to paint your pteranodon.

Shop for Craft Supplies at S&S Worldwide

How to Make Dinosaur Review Board Game:

1. Cut about 15 small dinosaur footprints from tan card stock. Cut 6 more dinosaur footprints from 6 different colors of paper. Place the tan prints and the different colored prints around the board in a circle separating the colored prints from each other by placing tan ones in between them. Glue them down with rubber cement.

2. Print out the pictures of dinosaurs and cut them out. Glue the dinosaur pictures to the middle of the board.

(Dino Pictures and footprint pattern 1 (PDF Pattern) and Dino Pictures and foot print patterns 2 (PDF Pattern)

3. Cut out large dinosaur footprints, at least 10 prints for each of the colors you used for the small prints on the game board. Write different questions about dinosaurs, math facts, or spelling or vocabulary words on the large dinosaur print shapes.

How to Play:

The object of the game is to collect one of each of the 6 colors of dinosaur prints. To start children place their toy dinosaurs on any of the tan dinosaur prints. They take turns throwing a die and moving their dinosaur in either direction (backwards or forwards) the number of spaces shown on the die. If they land on a colored dinosaur print, and answer a question that is written on one of the same color prints, they get to keep that print. If they already have that color of print, they don't answer a question, and they don't collect another one of the same color. The first child to collect all six different colors of prints wins.

Note: Instead of making a small game board, you can make a large game board on the floor using much larger prints. The children will be the game pieces.

dinosaur pictureWhile most children in Christian families recognize that God made the different animals and plants, they do not think about God creating the dinosaurs. This is no wonder, due to the fact that almost all children's books about dinosaurs teach that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago before man existed which does not follow Biblical teaching.

The topic of dinosaurs is probably used more than anything else to convince young people that evolution is true, and that the process took millions of years. The Great Dinosaur Mystery Web site explains in simple terms why it is obvious that God made the dinosaurs. You can find information about Dinosaurs and where they fit into the Creation Story. This site answers questions about the Great Flood, how different races developed, where in the Bible dinosaurs are mentioned, creation and evolution. You will also find coloring pages with rhymes and teacher notes that will help you explain and teach about the dinosaurs. There is also a teachers resource page with suggested books and videos, craft ideas, room decorations, and teaching tips.

* The following links are sites that may have information that may not coincide with the teachings in the Bible, however, they have some great information and activities and are worth checking out.

*ZoomDinosaurs.com - Here’s a great dinosaur page with lots of printouts, crafts and activities for different ages, and links to other dinosaur pages.
