Skill Level


Time to Make

1 hour + drying time for paint

Adult Supervision Needed


How to Make

  1. Take a white cotton cap and paint the cap using textile paint, apply a few coats to create a better coverage. Leave to dry.
  2. Once dry, cut out some eyes from white and black foam, then stick these onto the front of the cap.
  3. Using an A4 piece of white foam, cut out a long row of dinosaur teeth about 4cm in width and carefully apply a thin line of glue to the flat edge of the teeth with a hot glue gun. Stick this in place to the underneath of the visor.
  4. Cut out some spikes from light green foam and carefully apply a thin line of glue to the flat edge of the spike with a hot glue gun. Stick these in place in a row along the top of the cap.

Top Tip

Ask an adult to help glue the foam pieces to the cap as this could be hard for a child to do on their own.
