Unusual dinosaur crafts for kids with fun activities for all ages.
Dinosaur activities and crafts aren't just for little children, as you can see from this giant eagle-sized Meganeura dragonfly from the age of the dinosaurs.
Dragonfly wing patterns aren't that hard to draw. If you make some black marks with your gel pen that look a bit like wobbly ladders you'll do fine!
Alternatively, you can lie your transparent acetate on top of the illustration of Meganeura on pages 34-35 of this book and copy the wing patterns with gel pens.
The body is from blue card stock with holographic bands and the eyes look fantastic in holographic paper.
