Color Your Own Dinosaur Playscape

We have a train/play table in our living room and I try to change it up from time to time to keep it interesting. Last night while the kids where sleeping I made it into a dinosaur table. I wanted to make the design of it fairly simple and interactive for the boys. So I thought I would make it into a color your own dinosaur habitat.


I made this primarily out or re-purposed materials.  I covered the table with brown wrapping paper I got at the dollar store- we had already colored all over the back side of this piece. I taped the paper down with painters tape. Then I put a cardboard box toward the back of the table. It was a little beat up from the boys playing with it so I stuck a few sticks in the holes and cut two tunnels. Then I added a few more sticks, crayons and dinosaurs. The boys were very excited when they saw it.

E wanted me to help him make a river and a dinosaur train track.
