Bottom lineCreate with Clay Dinosaurs is a fun DIY kit that comes with the modelling clay, fossil skeletons and all the tools your kid will need to bring prehistoric creatures back to life.



  • 3 dinosaur skeletons that can be reused
  • 5 colours of non-drying clay and sculpting tools
  • Comes with googly eyes for a whimsical touch


Sometimes the simplest toys are the ones that bring a smile to everyone’s face. The Creativity for Kids Create with Clay Dinosaurs contains three plastic dinosaur “fossils” to cover with modelling clay, googly eyes, and plastic sculpting tools to craft your own designer dino. Encouraging the imagination to lead the way and honing kids' fine motor skills, this set includes colourful non-toxic clay that's non-drying, so you can use it again and again. (It can be washed off skin with soap and water, but may stain clothes, fine materials and upholstery, so be careful.) And once kids are finished creating their prehistoric pals, they can also be entertained with the fun dinosaur facts that come with the kit.

My kids, ages five and seven, really enjoyed flexing their creative muscles with this kit. Both are dinosaur buffs and really enjoyed working with the dino fossils to create their own dinosaurs.” —Elsie, mom of two
