Dinosaur Crowns Cut sponges into the shapes of tyrannosaurus dinosaur footprints. Fold paper towels in half and place them in shallow containers. Pour a small amount of brown tempera paint on top of each towel. Give the children crowns cut out of construction paper. Let the children cover their crown with dinosaur footprints by pressing the sponge stanps first into the paint and then onto their papers. When the paint has dried, write"tyrannosaurus (child's name)" on the front of each crown.
