My six year old Nephew is just nuts about dinosaurs, if there is something to know about them he knows it so I think these clothespin dinosaurs would be right up his alley to make with me! Although he knows everyone there is to know so it could be a busy day making them all

These little guys really look impressive! I am quite amazed at how easy they are to make, yet they really look involved! Another option might be to glue on tiny googly eyes, or to cut out a triangle ridge from contrasting felt to form a spiny back to these critters, even three layers for some dimension. Add some thread or fishline to hang them, or just clip them on! Great idea!

Good even for middle class students.
