Dinosaurs Had Colors?
While we usually assume these beasts were all gray, brown, or otherwise lacked color, this is incorrect. Scientists suspect color came in handy for camouflage, while also helping dinosaurs attract a mate. Not only that, but some dinosaurs, like the Velociraptor, even had feathers!
Intermix crafting with a bit of education and help your child make a diorama. You can make small volcanoes or incorporate natural elements from the outdoors like rocks, dirt, and leaves. And don’t forget to place a few realistic dinosaur action figures to really bring it to life.
