On paper, children should be petrified of dinosaurs. In reality, they are OBSESSED. T. rex is a case in point. Ferocious, enormous and harnessing some real anger issues, he’s not an obvious candidate for a toy. But because he’s long gone, and poses absolutely no threat whatsoever, kids love him. Being extinct sure has made the T. rex more likeable.
It's easy to turn plastic toys into Jurassic jewels. For each, twist a 1/4-inch screw eye into a small plastic dinosaur. Brush the dino with tacky glue, sprinkle with fine glitter to cover, then set it on waxed paper to dry. Add a length of string for hanging.
