Dinosaur Skull

Dinosaur skulls make great home decor. A large triceratops skull hanging in the den looks much more impressive than another poor creature. If you are an apartment dweller, an ankylosaurus skull on a stand is very cool. I have a friend who has a T-Rex head in her living room. Lord Stirling is very dapper in his top hat and scarf, and is always dressing up for the holidays with various other hats to mark the occasion. 

Dinosaur skulls are best acquired on Etsy. There is a huge selection of different options, from smaller, desk sized dinosaur heads, to full sized dinosaur skull replicas. Dinosaur skull keychains are also very popular; carry your favorite triassic cranium with you wherever you go. Dinosaur skull pendants are available too, for a very cool accessory.

MikesMenageries has a beautiful triceratops skull, perfect for mounting. 3D printed with a biodegradable plastic, you can be sure no actual dinosaurs were harmed in the acquisition of your new dinosaur skull! 

If the classic T-Rex skull is what you are after, EnviroSkulls has a giant T-Rex skull for you! At 18” long, this dinosaur skull will impress anyone who sees it! Created from environmentally friendly, non-toxic, plant-based material that is fully recyclable and sustainable, this incredible piece of dinosaur art is the perfect way to dress up any room. 

Whether it is a small velociraptor skull or a giant T-Rex skull, thanks to 3D printing, every dinosaur fan can have a dinosaur skull on display!

Dinosaur Books

Dinosaur books make great entertainment. You could be an adult interested in a good dinosaur novel, or a child with a dinosaur picture book. Either way, dinosaur books come in many different types of fun reading. There are so many types to choose from; a good dinosaur graphic novel or an educational dinosaur textbook, dinosaur books really are for everyone! Here are a few dinosaur books that top our dinosaur reading list!

“We Love Dinosaurs” by Lucy Volpin

“We Love Dinosaurs” by Lucy Volpin is a great dinosaur book for younger kids. It is full of rhyming words, and dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes! “Dinosaurs Can’t Roar” by Layla Beason is another fantastic dinosaur hardcover for the younger generation. This dinosaur book helps to teach the difference between myth and new scientific facts about dinosaurs.

“The Dinosaur Lords” by Victor Milan

For us adults, dinosaur books abound. If you are a dinosaur fiction lover, “The Dinosaur Lords” by Victor Milan might be what you are looking for. This dinosaur paperback takes place in a setting similar to our 14th century, the difference is dinosaurs still roam the earth and have been domesticated for a number of tasks. Michael Crichton has written more than one dinosaur novel; there is the classic, “Jurassic Park”, however “Dragon Teeth” is also a dino-mite read! (See what I did there?) 

Jurassic Park

For the non-fiction dinosaur book lover, “The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs: A New History of a Lost World” by Steve Brusatte has been called the “best dinosaur biography” by Scientific American, and it was rated one of the best science books of 2018. It is a must read for all dinosaur enthusiasts. “King of the Dinosaur Hunters: The Life of John Bell Hatcher and the Discoveries that Shaped Paleontology” by Lowell Dingus is another fascinating dinosaur read. This dinosaur biography explores the life of the “real life Indiana Jones” and his many dinosaur finds.

If you are looking for some great reading, dinosaur books have got you covered. From dinosaur fiction for adults, to dinosaur picture books for kids, it is always fun to read about dinosaurs. Dinosaur non-fiction is a fun way to learn about our earth’s history. Even a good dinosaur graphic novel or dinosaur comic book can be a delightful way to enjoy our favorite subject!

If DIY is your Halloween costuming thing, look no further than a hoodie, some scrap fabric and a glue gun for your toddlers dinosaur costume! Simply cut some triangles out of the scrap fabric and glue them down the back of the hoodie – instant toddler dinosaur suit! Add a pair of matching jogging pants to make a dinosaur tail. Cut one leg off and tie it closed on one end. Stuff the dinosaur tail costume with stuffing and then tie the open end closed. Glue it to a pair of pants and you have a tail!

One of the best dinosaur Halloween costumes I have seen in a long time belongs to sarahhalstead.com. Her daughter has Cerebral Palsy and so their family halloween costumes always contain adaptability. The Jurassic Park Halloween costume was no different. The family turned a wheelchair into one of the jeeps, while the rest of the family were dressed in dinosaur costumes. What a fantastic way to trick or treat!
