Footprint Stegosaurus Craft

Here's a simple and fun idea to make a stegosaurus craft from a footprint.


  • sheet of construction paper(background)
  • green or other color construction paper(footprint)
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • glue
  • markers


  1. Have students step onto construction paper and trace their foot.
  2. Cut out the foot
  3. Glue onto a different color construction paper(the heel becomes the head)
  4. Let students draw a thick tail on the toes side of the footprint.
  5. Cut about 10 triangles and glue on for the dorsal plates.
  6. Draw a face and legs.

Alternatively, you cold cut out pieces for the legs and tail. I think this idea could be easily adapted to make an anklyosaurus by drawing circles or scale shapes for the bony plates on the shell.
