How to Make a Dinosaur Picture Using Noodles

Dinosaur Bones Craft

Marion shares these directions to help you make a fun dinosaur bones craft using cooked spaghetti noodles.

  • Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Cooke the spaghetti noodles until they are sticky. Let them cool. If you like, you can use other kinds of noodles.

Marion suggests cutting construction paper into large dinosaur shapes or drawing out dinosaur shapes. If you like, you can use one of my free dinosaur coloring book pages.

Once the kids have their dinosaur and cooled noodles, they simple arrange the sticky dinosaur bones (noodles) inside their dinosaurs! You can talk about skeletons and how they make a basic structure to hold us up. You can also teach the kids about exoskeletons and endoskeletons if you have children who are interested in big words.

I hope you enjoy this craft project. If you make this craft, make sure you send in a photo so it can be posted here. You can also get your own crafts published.
