Step 1:  Cut strips of paper and tape or glue them together.  This will make the long tail part of the hat. If using glue, you can use clothespins to hold in place until dry.

Step 4: Attach the scales to the long strip of paper by gluing the scales to each other at the top and attaching with a clothespin or paper clip to dry. Add the long strip tale and the circular hat to finish off the dinosaur.  This was such a hit!!  Great fun and minimal time involved.
