Craft - Painting and the Dinosaur

We have been a little quiet on the crafting front lately. We have had a nasty run of bugs and sickness and just keeping my head above water has been a mission enough!
However, after seeing some gorgeous things on Pinterest and getting inspired by the Dinosaur theme on Playschool last week ( the kids are a little Playschool mad lately after seeing them live in concert last weekend, post to come, it was fantastic!) Anyway, this is what we got up to!!

Painting a Dinosaur (and our faces, and our hands and anything in the way!!)

It simply is a paper plate, cut 2/3 of the way across, then the left over piece , I made the head, tail and legs out of. Not quite dinosaur looking but it was well received by Miss 3!!
Stapled all together, then we stuck pegs all around the back.

               And then, Stella went for it with the green paint! Everywhere, even the pegs. Simple and fun.

And this was one of the first times I have given Max and Lacey free reign with the paints, only I thought that stamping pads would be a safer option with them. hmmmmmm maybe?!

However, Master Max, bless him, decided the paint was better elsewhere! Lucky its non toxic and childsafe!

And the finished product (other than some cool art by the 17 month olds!!)
