Color the dinosaurs with crayons, markers or colored pencils. You can also paint them using tempera or poster paint.
You can add details like stripes or spots—some scientists actually think that skin patterns could have helped some dinosaurs camouflage themselves.
4Cut out the dinosaurs.
Once done coloring all the dinosaurs, cut them all out.
If you painted the dinosaurs, let the paint dry before cutting them out.
5Cut out the bases and stands.
Cut out the bases and stands as well.
Each base has a pair of dotted vertical lines at the bottom. The stands, on the other hand, have these pair of vertical lines on the top edge. Cut slits on both bases and stands following these dotted lines.
7Fold each stand in half.
Fold each stand in the middle and unfold to come up with a V-shaped piece.
8Glue each dinosaur onto its base.
Each base has a dinosaur's name on it. Glue each dinosaur onto the designated base, positioning it as close to the bottom edge as possible and keeping clear of the slits that you made in Step 6.
9Interlock the base and stand.
The stands are labeled with the dinosaur's names as well. Pick out the matching stand. Connect it to the base by interlocking its slits with those of the base.
10Put the dinosaur on a flat surface.
The interlocked base and stand will allow the paper dinosaur to stand.
Craft more standing paper dinosaurs following the steps above.
