EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Put on a prehistoric puppet show with puppets you made yourself thanks to the Klutz Jr. My Dino Finger Puppets. There are enough supplies for kids to create three different dinosaurs and then play out all sorts of adventures with them. It's as easy as modeling with clay, adding accessories, and then putting on a show.

If kids can roll clay into a ball, then they can make a dinosaur puppet. The Clay Size Guide helps kids roll extra small, small, medium, large, and extra large balls, depending on what part of the dinosaur they're forming. Follow the instructions to transform the air-dry clay into prehistoric pets. The finger puppet tubes make it easy for kids to roll, wrap, and stick the clay pieces. Once kids have the finger puppet tube covered in clay, they can add stickers, eyes, and paper accessories to customize the look of their dinosaur, turning it into a T.Rex, a pterodactyl, or a triceratops. The 32-page instruction booklet also provides real dino facts that kids can learn about as they create (for kids who can't read yet, parents will need to read those fun facts).

When kids are done making their dinosaurs, they can use additional accessories to make a dino park for a dinosaur to play in.

Is It Fun?

This activity kit is designed with young children in mind. Rolling balls and attaching them to the finger puppet tube makes it easier for kids to form a dinosaur shape than if they were just free-hand creating with the clay. This makes the process much more satisfying for kids. The clay also provides a nice tactile element. Kids will also like designing and dressing up their dinos in costumes for unique dinosaur looks. And playing with the puppets encourages imaginative play and storytelling.

Who It’s For

This book and craft kit is for ages 4 and up. Kids who like dinosaurs will have fun making their own.

What To Be Aware Of

The kit includes a 32-page instruction book, air-dry clay in three colors, three finger puppet forms, glue, a clay size guide, and more than 80 paper punch-outs.

You'll also need to provide a pencil from home.

Make sure to store any leftover clay in an airtight container, or it will dry out and you won't be able to use it again.
