Make your own Dinorama!

Here we show you how to make a prehistoric diorama in a jar, using modelling clay and those odd toy dinosaurs that always get stuck down the back of the sofa! (If you don’t have any lurking around you can pick them up cheap at most pound shops).


For this make you will need:

  • Clay or plasticine
  • Leaves and twigs either real or plastic. (if you want to splash out, try your local pet shop to see what the stock to decorate aquariums)
  • Clean, dry jar with a lid (and no label). We used a pickle jar
  • Selection of small dinosaur figures.
