Never promise a child an origami dinosaur.

An origami tyrannosaurus would be a doddle surely - one big fold for the head and a couple for the legs.

I wouldn't promise the kid a stegasaurus though - That could get tricky. :confused:

I hope this child is easily pleased - Paper dinosaurs aren't exactly the latest word in exciting special effects :rolleyes:

Take your cue from one of my favourite children's books, "The Little Prince"
The Little Prince: Chapter 2 (http://www.angelfire.com/hi/littleprince/framechapter2.html)

Make a box. Tell said child that the velociraptor is safe inside the box, and under no circumstances must he open it.

Yes, unfortunately the one I picked was a bit complicated, I had to find a course in origami to understand the instructions. Still, it came out OK after about an hour of folding.

My son is blind so I could simply screw up the paper and tell him that all dinosaurs were round balls, just like screwed up paper. A bit like planes and busses in that respect. To him I am the king of Origami becuase I can make anything!
