Dinosaur Feet

From: A Bird and a Bean

What You Need: Two tissue boxes, tissue paper, scissors, glittery modge podge, brushes, sponges or cardboard, duct tape and a hot glue gun.

How to Do It: Use the duct tape to reduce the size of the tissue-box openings so they're the right size for little feet (you can also use duct tape to reinforce the opening for extended stomping). Cut tissue paper into pieces and decoupage them onto the boxes with glittery modge podge. Hot glue triangles cut out of a sponge or cardboard to the front of the box as toenails. Let your kids stomp around the house and roar!
