Miniature Prehistoric Party
Dinosaurs have taken over the Handmade Charlotte studio! But no need to fear, these dino visitors don’t mean any harm – they just want to craft! Have fun setting up a dino diorama or dollhouse using bits and bobs you have laying around. Of course, we had to get these dinos crafting! These prehistoric pals’ tiny hands were super helpful when it came down to perfecting all the little details.

How to Make Edible Dioramas
We are diorama obsessed, so we had a blast making these edible dioramas. We used rice krispie treats as our starting point, but you can really use almost anything you like. These dinosaur dioramas (say that five times fast!) feature edible stickers, sprinkles, and assorted candies.
DIY Dinosaur Frames for Kids
Here’s a fun decorating project for kids that only takes a bit of cardboard and a few toy dinosaurs. It’s an easy craft to keep kids occupied on a rainy day and has the added bonus of allowing them to create a work of art for their bedroom wall. Decorate and play at the same time!
DIY Doily Dinosaurs
Who says dinosaurs have to be scary? Not us! Use bright colors and doilies to make the friendliest crew of dinosaurs that you’ve ever laid eyes on! We used recycled corrugated cardboard for the main structure of these guys, but you could swap in thinner cereal box cardboard or even paper plates instead.
