You might not be able to discover dinosaur bones in your own backyard, but dinosaur crafts for kids will give you a chance to explore history. From making your own fossils to creating an origami dinosaur, there's plenty to keep you entertained when it comes to these prehistoric creatures.

And the best part about making dinosaur crafts is that you can bring the Jurassic Era straight into your home. Just jump right in and find your inner paleontologist -- that's someone who studies dinosaurs.
