Later this month Fireflies and Jellybeans is having an Iron Crafter competition. Just like the tv show Iron Chef, she gives a secret ingredient and then you have to make something out of it. I don’t know if I’m going to enter this (it’s just one of those projects that seems too easy to be impressive to anyone) but that’s why I decided to make something out of a cardboard box.
I started with a cardboard box, some markers, and scissors. I felt like a third grader.
I looked at some pictures of dinosaur coloring pages on the internet to get the shape of my dinosaur’s head, then I sketched it onto a piece of paper. You can see it in the picture if you look really closely.
I cut out the shape and traced it onto the back side of the box and cut it out. Then I sketched in a face based on the coloring book pages I found online (just Google “dinosaur coloring pages”)
I colored it orange because I am on a Halloween kick and I needed a light color so that you would be able to see the detail. Then I traced the face and added the letters in each of the spikes to represent the days of the week.
I wrote different chores onto clothes pins and clipped one onto each spike. In theory that will be one chore that Nicholas would be responsible for doing on that day of the week.
I taped it to the front of one of our refrigerator magnets. There you have it, my Din-o-Chore
