We love natural craft projects! Here are a few of our favourite creations using (and reusing!) natural craft materials...

Natural Wooden Dinosaur Shapes

Download Activity Guide
  • For fast results, try using a hot glue gun. Adult supervision required.
  • Step 1For your Stegosaurus: • Crush a handful of Dried Leaves into small pieces. • Cover your Wooden Stegosaurus Shape in PVA glue. • One by one layer the leaf pieces onto the Wooden Shape. Be sure to cover as much of the Stegosaurus as possible. Allow to dry. • Use a gumnut to create an eye. Trim the back of the gumnut to make a flat surface. Attach with glue.
  • Step 2For your Brontosaurus: • Cut a piece of spider mesh (8 x 10cm). Attach the mesh to your wooden shape with glue. Trim around the edge of your wooden shape to remove any excess mesh. • Cut out six oval shapes (1 x 1cm) from Olive Green Abaca Mesh to create spots. Attach with glue. • Use a nut from the Australian Pod Mix to create an eye. Trim the back of the nut to make a flat surface. Attach with glue.
