Does your girl or boy like dinosaurs? Anyway, we like doing dinosaur stuff and a thought it would be a good idea to share some ideas for a simple craft for little kids to help with, aka the Dino-Letter. It’s an easy way to personalize a corner of a dessert table and add a pop of color at the same time. Best of all, after the party, it can move to the birthday child’s bedroom as a decoration. We love it when party supplies can be used after the event, too.

Supplies Needed For This Easy DIY Dinosaur Project:

  1. Small Paint Brushes
  2. Wooden Letters
  3. Hot Glue Gun
  4. Craft Paints
  5. Spray Paint
  6. Learning Resources Jumbo Dinosaurs

We used a letter for the birthday boy’s initials, but you could substitute a wooden number to represent the birthday age, too. If you can’t be outside for spray painting because of the weather or time of year just use a cardboard box as a miniature paint booth. We gave our dinosaur a couple of coats all around. While he was drying, we painted the wood letter. Be sure to protect your surface with newspaper—lots of newspaper, especially if you have a small-sized “helper”.

When they were both completely dry (check your paint can/bottle for particulars) we glued the letter behind the dinosaur’s hands so he appears to be holding the letter. We also found that the dinosaur could sit on the letter or hold the letter with one hand and he would look like he was chewing the letter. This is an easy project that adds a good dose of color to the dessert table, it can serve as room décor later AND it’s good for some mom/son laughter on a winter-cold afternoon.
