Dino Love

It's not the first time we've decorated our toy animals here, but it's definitely a first to have made dinosaur armor. We opened the art supply drawer, dug through the recycle bin, and let it fly. We became lost in time, much like the book Dinotopia, which continued to inspire some of our fun. E paged through it for ideas and was intrigued by an illustration showing a metal wrapped dinosaur scale. Foil with felt hot glued to the back works great for armor base material and "wrapping". Dinotopia is incredibly imaginative! It's one of the reasons we need books like this (inspiring books = words+illustrations+ideas). This project launched into others -- still out on the table. Still FLYIN'!

That is so cute and so creative! I love the Dinotopia books. I can't wait until my son is old enough to read them!
