Description

Tiny Dino Worlds shows dinosaur lovers of all ages how to create prehistoric habitats with real plants. From active volcanoes and dino poop to handmade fossils and interactive terrariums, kids and adults alike will have fun building living habitats for all of their favorite dinos.

Design a Jurassic world with plants that actually look just like prehistoric ones--or stage an epic battle between the vicious T-rex and the stubborn Triceratops. The book includes 26 simple projects (appropriate for kids ages 4-10), ranging from making sticky mud traps from homemade slime to cracking open "ice eggs" to reveal the dino hidden inside. Written by a crafty mom and vetted by two paleontologists, this book is jam-packed with fun, educational projects, weird but true facts about dinosaurs, and gorgeous step-by-step photography. Tiny Dino Worlds is sure to delight all the dinosaur-lovers in your life!
