Party Dino's

Ellia is my sassy and sweet, crazy, blue and pink loving 3 year old. She likes dinosaurs, ponies and babies. She loves crafts and baking, dancing and performing. Ellia has a wild imagination, which blows my mind. We are either flying on an airplane to California or sitting in a classroom learning something.  She's all these amazing things and way more wrapped into a cute little curly haired bundle of happiness. With her room I wanted to incorporate so many different aspects of Ellia and make it fun and her own. 

I bought these plastic dino's at a thrift store for $1.99 each. I decided to give them a little girly flare  by adding some paint, flowers and party hats. 

Materials:

plastic dino
acrylic paint
paint brushes
silk or dried flowers 
glue gun
paper & pen/markers
two sided tape
mini pom poms
 
Paint dinos! I decided to go with two colours.
Hot glue gun flowers to the dino!
Draw pattern or print off the computer. 
Outline a party hat shape, shown above. You can also find templates for this online, but I just free handed it. 
 
Cut out, tape together and hot glue a mini pom pom to the top! I then hot glued the party hat to the dino.

Ellia thinks they are so fun and enjoys playing with them too! Thanks to George from
Peppa Pig for making the dino a popular toy around here... RAAAAAWR
