Flying Pterosaur – Day 5 National Craft Month March 2012

This is a fast, easy craft for the dinosaur lover in your house.

Can you guess what my favorite color is?

Depending on the age of the crafter, the helper might want to do the cutting.

Using the crayon, draw the wings of the pterosaur. Make sure the folded edge is on the open part of the wings, otherwise you will wind up with two separate pieces. However, if that happens, just tape them together down the center line.

I chose to use a darker orange crayon but if you want to use a completely different color, that will make the details stand out more.

I made my teeth by drawing a zig-zag line across the mouth:)

Glue works just as well, however it can be a little messy.

I chose curling ribbon because it was what I had on hand. Yarn, string, other types of ribbon can all be substituted.

Wow, this picture is just a little bit fuzzy. Two more pieces of tape to attach the feet and the hanging ribbon and you’re all set to go.

And there you have it – pterosaurs ready for adventure!

I found this idea in the Usborne Preschool Activities Dinosaur Fun book, where they have ten other fun crafts for little ones.
