Toilet Paper Roll Dinosaur Bone

This is a cross post from my TP Craft site. If you are interested in other crafty projects using toilet paper and paper towel rolls then you should check it out.

Dinosaur Bone Supply List: 1 toilet paper roll, newspaper, tape, flour, mixing bowl, paint
Ball up newspaper and tape it to the end of your toilet paper roll.
Tear the remaining newspaper into small strips and mix your paper mache. To make the paper mache I mixed equal parts water with flour, about a cup of each. Then I added in a couple of squirts of glue.
Dip the newspaper in your paper mache mixture and cover the toilet paper roll.
Allow the dinosaur bone to dry, we left ours overnight. Paint the bone white.

Book Suggestion: How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? by Jane Yolen is an amusing and fun book that follows some dinosaur friends through their bedtime shenanigans. We love all of the books in the dinosaur series.

This is a great project! I made ours, then hid them around the house for archeaolgical dig.
