Supplies Needed to Make a Towel Dinosaur
1. One bath towel
2. Two hand towels
3. Eyes and any other desired embellishments
How to Fold a Towel Dinosaur
Start with the bath towel, and make the standard towel animal body, same as the dog, pig, or most of the other towel animals. Roll both ends to the middle from the short sides.
Fold in half with rolls to the outside and pull the tips out of each roll.
Hold the tips of the two rolls from the same end of the towel in one hand and the tips of the two rolls from the other end of the towel in the other hand. Pull all four at the same time until the rolls pull out into the four legs of an animal body.
Take the two hand towels, and one at a time and hang the center on a peg or hold it under your chin.
Tightly roll both sides at the same time so that the rolls come to a point at the end on the hook or under your chin, just like rolling the towels for the cat’s head.
Turn the dinosaur body over so the rolled parts in the middle are on the top. Insert the two hand towels into the middle of the body between the rolls with one pointing out on each side.
Turn over and set body into a seated position.
Raise neck and shape head as desired. You may need to make some adjustments in the position of the head and neck towel and the front legs to get it to stand up.
Decorate as desired. I used googly eyes and a pipe cleaner to decorate mine. Bits of felt, cloth, or paper work fine for eyes too.
Then next animal in this cruise ship towel animal folding series is the towel bear.

I just love these. So very clever. One day I’ll get around to trying them all out and impress my friends like mad.
If I can get myself organized and ready in time for Christmas, I’d love to have these sitting on the beds of the overnight guests. That would be fun! Thanks for the instructions. 🙂
It’s so cute!
