Materials

  • Dino Dan frame & stickers
  • Computer paper or cardstock
  • Craft knife or scissors (parents only)
  • Photo of your child's original drawing or artwork
  • Tape or glue stick
  • Sticker paper
  • Self-adhesive laminating sheets (optional)

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Dinos are everywhere! Even in your family photos! First print out the Dino Dan photo frame on cardstock (for extra durability) or regular paper.

  2. Step 2

    With a craft knife or scissors cut out the photo frame where indicated along the dashed lines. (This part is for parents only.)

  3. Step 3

    If you're using a photo, make sure it's the right size for the space provided (resize if necessary using photo-editing software). A 5 x 6 photo should work fine. To use traditional film, just cut the photo to size. For a real family keepsake, your child might want to make an original drawing or painting.

  4. Step 4

    Tape or glue the photo or artwork to the back of the frame so it shows through the opening, making sure it's centered.

  5. Step 5

    Now it's your child's turn to decorate the frame and photo with dinosaurs. Cut out or help your child cut out the mini dinosaurs on the printable. You can print on regular paper and use a glue stick or print on sticker paper so your little paleontologists won't make a mess. Let their imagination run wild, adding dinos to the photo and the frame.

  6. Step 6 (optional)

    To seal in the memories (for archaeologists of the future!) and make them longer lasting, laminate the frame with self-adhesive laminating sheets, which are available at craft-supply stores.
