How to Make a T-Rex Head Out of Paper
Creating a T-rex head from paper is a good project for children. (dinosaur image by Galyna Andrushko from

The ferocious roar of a Tyrannosaurus rex, with his sharp teeth bearing to his enemy, may captivate a young child as he watches an educational cartoon. Creating a T-rex head out of paper can be a fun follow-up craft project to any lesson on dinosaurs. It lets children practice skills such as tracing, drawing and cutting.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Trace the outline of a T-rex head onto a piece of construction paper. While you can use any colour, brown or green works well for a dinosaur. Use a picture of the T-rex as a model for accurate drawing.

  2. 2

    Cut along the outline of the head with scissors.

  3. 3

    Turn the head outline over to avoid seeing any of the tracing lines that may show up on the paper.

  4. 4

    Add the details to the head, such as the eyes, nostrils, mouth and teeth. Use paint, crayons, paper cutouts or markers to add the finishing touches to the T-rex head.

Tips and warnings

  • If you aren't confident with your outline drawing ability, locate a template of a T-rex head that you can photocopy or print out.
  • Make your T-rex head with its mouth open for an angry look.
  • Use safety scissors if you are doing this project with young children.
