What do you need to make this Dinosaur Handprint Craft?
First, download our FREE printable dinosaur template down below. Then take green paint (like tempera or acrylic in our case) and use a paint brush to add to your child’s hand to stamp on the template. You’ll need additional green paint to add the neck and a black marker for spikes and face features. That’s it! To dress up the canvas, we taped it to a large piece of green cardstock paper but you can either frame it or just gift it as is on white cardstock!

1. Print out the template.
2. Lay your child's hand flat and paint an even layer of green paint. Flip it and stamp on the printable. Note your printable will need to be facing upright but upside down. We stamped the left hand to have the tail show on the left when right side up (as shown in images).
3. If you don't get full coverage, don't worry you can fill in the holes with your paintbrush lightly.
4. With a pencil draw the dinosaur neck. Fill in with green paint.
5. Use a black marker to add spikes and face features.
6. Glue or tape to a piece of 12" green cardstock optional. Or insert inside a frame to make it last longer.
7. Don't forget to have your child date and sign if you'd like!
