A Pine Cone Dinosaur

Here in the UK, it is definitely autumn.  British Summer Time (BST), has officially ended, the clocks went back an hour over the weekend and we have had our first frosts.  Still, team workers are snug in their offices working hard to prepare and pack orders for customers.  However, occasionally, just occasionally we get a little time to be creative and make something with a dinosaur or fossil motif.

Take for example this pine cone dinosaur that has been constructed.

A Pine Cone Dinosaur – a Pinoceratops Perhaps?

We used four acorns for the dinosaur’s limbs, the base of the head crest is the bottom of one pine cone, whilst the body is made from another pine cone.  To complete our dinosaur, we made a small head using an off-cut of cardboard and the large brow horns are also made from card too.  To finish our horned dinosaur, we wanted to add a small nose horn, but what to use, how about a pine nut, after all, it is in keeping with the rest of our prehistoric animal.
