So dinosaurs are a thing, right? My kids were really into dinosaurs when they were like three years old, everything had to be a just like a T-rex or Raptor "Come on...eat your veggies like a dinosaur".
I thought that they had grown out of the whole dinosaur thing, but then Jarassic World reignited their passion all over again and dinosaurs are all the rage in our house.
So it's been a no brainer for me to make the next cardboard template a Tyrannosaurus rex, because in my kids minds he/she is the ultimate of all dinosaurs to dress up as.
My kids and their friends have gone wild of the dinosaur head costumes and I'm pretty sure your's will too. It is a fun template to put together and a lot of the joins are covered up by the dinosaur bumps so it's also forgiving on your hot glueing skills.
Your can Download the Dinosaur Head costume template and dress up as your favourite T-Rex Dinosaur this halloween or fancy dress party with this Dinosaur head made out of cardboard.
