Recycle those packing peanuts into this Tyrannosaurus box puppet or you can glue on screwed up balls of crepe paper or even uncooked macaroni for a toothy looking T-rex. With a little imagination you could create a whole gallery of different prehistoric species.
Paint and brushes
Cotton reel (or alternative)
Felt or coloured paper for tongue
Select a long solid cardboard box that can be sealed closed at both ends. Paint box a suitable colour for a dinosaur. For extra effect, paint one side red (this will be the inside of the mouth).
Cut box in half along three sides and fold in half to form a box puppet.
Attach segments from an egg carton to form eyes, and a cotton reel to make a nose.
Glue packing peanuts around the mouth to form teeth. It's a good idea to let these dry before you embark on the finishing touches.
Glue on a felt or cardboard tongue.
Paint on some reptilian eyes and your box puppet will be ready to rampage!
