It seems like a lifetime ago that I reviewed Laura Minter and Tia Williams’ Pirate Craft Book. But, when I did so it was perfect timing as Little Miss C had a pirate themed learning week coming up at school. We were able to try out so many of the projects in the book as a way of making sure she had everything she needed for pirate dressing up day. Alas, my review of their latest title, The Dinosaur Craft Book, doesn’t tie in with any planned themed learning, but as I sit here 40 weeks pregnant writing this review I’m quite glad. I’m not sure I’m quite up for sorting out dressing up stuff this week on top of everything else!
Laura and Tia blog over at Little Button Diaries, and if you follow them online you will have seen some of their amazing makes, and The Dinosaur Craft Book is a brilliant resource containing 15 brilliant projects that cover everything you might need if you have a little dinosaur fan at home.
The projects themselves range from Dinosaur Paws and Pterodactyl Wings for dressing up, through to String and Nail Art to decorate a bedroom wall and a Volcano Cake which would be a real showstopper at any dinosaur themed birthday party.
All of them are explained with clear, step-by-step instructions, that helpfully include lots of photographs. They also use materials that you may either have lying around at home, or can get your hands on easily and cheaply. There’s also a handy overview at the start of the book of the tools and materials that you may need.
What I most love about The Dinosaur Craft Book is the range of projects inside. It’s not just limited to dressing up. There are activities your little dinosaur fan can get involved in. Things that you can make and give as gifts and also some fab ideas for dinosaur based play. It’s basically a must for any little dinosaur fan. Or any big ones!
The Dinosaur Craft Book was published by GMC Publications in November 2018. ISBN 978-1-78494-484-1 and is priced at £5.99. It is available to buy online here.
