Macaroni and Imagination Make Magic
In the Abby's Flying Fairy School episode "Call It Macaronisaurus," Blogg magically brings his dinosaur macaroni art to life. What other fun things can you imagine bringing to life? A bunch of cotton balls could be a snowman or a fluffy sheep! Grab your craft supplies and make your creation come to life using your own imagination!
Step 1: Things You'll Need
Collect the items from the materials list.
Little Hands Tip: What sounds do you think a macaronisaurus makes?
Step 2: Print It
Print out the Macaronisaurus Sheet.
Step 3: Color the Beast
Use crayons or markers to color the Macaronisaurus. Remember, this is a magical dinosaur, and it can be any color you want!
Step 4: Be Green
Unfold an empty cereal box so it is one flat piece of cardboard. Reusing household items for a different purpose is a great way to reduce waste. Explain to your child that "reuse" means to use again.
Little Hands Tip: What other things can you use again for toys or crafts?
Step 5: Glue It
Glue one finished Macaronisaurus sheet to the cereal box.
Step 6: Grown Up Step
Once the glue has dried, a parent should cut out the model along the dotted lines.
Step 7: Cut out the Marcaronisaurus
Carefully cut out the model pieces from the other Macaronisaurus sheet.
Step 8: Match It
Match the paper pieces you just cut out with the cardboard models you already made. Then, glue the paper pieces to the opposite sides of the cardboard models.
Step 9: Snip It
Once you have the model complete, snip the solid grey lines to create slits by the neck, hip, arms, and legs.
Step 10: Slide It
Slide the arms into the slit near the neck and slide the legs into the slit by the hips.
