Let’s just admit that dinosaurs are cool.  Whether you are a boy or girl, they are just down right awesome.  Who didn’t wish for dinosaurs to be alive when they were a kid?  I know I did and currently so does my youngest right now too.  Lily is going through a big dinosaur phase so I thought why not create a little dinosaur environment for her for her bedroom.  This 10 Minute Dinosaur Mason Jar For Kids is one of the easiest projects I have created and I probably got the best reaction too when I was all finished.  Hands down she loved this project.  Let’s get stated with all of the dinosaur awesomeness!

And of course, these little plastic dinosaurs.

Step 1:  Using your kitchen tongs, place the moss into the Mason Jar. Then place any other items you may want to create a cool habitat.  You can use lots of different things.  I chose to use the moss, rocks, and twigs.

Step 2:  Insert dinosaurs with the tongs or fingers.  For the ones in the back I used the tongs.

Step 3:  Screw the lid on.  It’s that easy!

If you would like to add a Pterodactyl, this is how I did it.  I hot glued a little hot glue to the back of the Pterodactyl and then when the glue was dry added some E6000.  I then placed the Pterodactyl on the inside of the jar and squished it into place holding it for a little bit till I knew it was going to stay.  Now, it looks like this little guy is flying.

After you gather all of your supplies, this literally does take 10 minutes.  Probably even faster if you don’t fuss as much as I did about the placement of the dinosaurs.  This is the view from the other side.
