Dinosaur hands (sort of)

We’ve gone dinosaur crazy here, so for our painting this week we stuck to theme.

Master D turns everything into ‘dinos’ – he bent all of his lego people over ‘like crawling dinos mum’, and even his fingers and toes became dinos during a long drive 🙂 His dino craze inspired me to paint his hands into dinos (or try to anyway – check it out for yourself ;-)).

We found some face paint and used a foam paint brush to cover his hands in his chosen colours ‘a red t-rex and a black squawking one please’. Then we stuck on some googly eyes, before painting some sharp teeth and spikes. Since the dinos were already playing when I was trying to paint the details this did get a bit tricky!

We might try some other animals next 🙂

Thanks for reading, Kelly

    I love that he turns his legos into dinos! Awesome! Making hands into the dinosaurs is so fun too. Makes their imagination run wild. Glad you shared this with us on Monday Madness.
