If your child is like mine, they love everything about dinosaurs, even dino feet! And I promise you, they’re going to love this wearable dinosaur feet craft even more!
After I made my son a Dino helmet out of cardboard, I knew he needed the feet to go along with it.
This craft is fun for both parent and child and super simple to make! Here’s what you’ll need:
- Free Dinosaur Foot Template
- Paint or crayons
- 2 rubber bands
- Clear packing tape
- X Acto Knife

First, you’ll need card stock. The dino foot template is 8.5 x 11″, so two letter-sized pieces of cardstock are enough. (I used 1 large piece of cardstock).
Next, take the dino foot template and cut out the foot. After this, trace around the template on the cardstock twice to make two dino feet. While the template is over the cardstock, take the exacto knife and cut along the dotted lines to create an opening in the middle of the feet.
Once that is done, cut around the outlines The end result should look like this:
Now you can colour these bad boys and you can use whatever you’d like to colour them in. We decided against paint because my son didn’t want to wait for them to dry. Instead, we used pastel crayons.
When the dino feet are coloured, it’s time to laminate them, with tape! This is optional and you can laminate them with real laminating pouches, but tape will make them more durable and is softer than a laminating pouch.
Cut off any lleft over tape and reopen the slits in the middle.
Lastly, you’ll want to cut two small holes onto both sides of each foot. Thread a rubber band into each hole and tie a knot. This helps keep the dino foot from sliding from side to side while being worn. Feel free to cut the “toes” shorter depending on your child’s foot size.
Enjoy!! You’ll hear lots of foot stomps and roars as your little ones transforms into a fierce dinosaur!
