A lot of dinosaurs have tricky names, y'all. I found that the key was to fake as much confidence confindence as possible.

Make and Take Craft: D is for Dinosaur
-di-cut letter Ds
-googly eyes or eye stickers
-construction paper shapes (triangles, ovals, rectangles)
Process: Before story time, glue 1 or 2 "D"s to each piece of paper, cut out construction paper shapes and make sure you haven't lost the eye stickers in the craft closet (whoops). After story time pass out the pieces of paper and show how the different shapes can be glued on to make the "D"s look like dinosaur bodies. The triangles can be spikes along the back, the ovals for heads, and the rectangles for legs, arms, necks and tails.
Time: Prep took about 45 minutes, craft took 30.
