Step 2: Get Cutting

Using the craft knife, cut a hole in the back of the dinosaur. Make sure that it is large enough for the plant to fit, luckily these plastic dinosaurs are hollow.

Step 3: Get Painting

I decided to spray paint the dinosaurs because my son is getting older and I thought the sleek look of gray dinosaurs would look better in his bedroom than the colorful counterparts. Simply spray the entire dinosaur with paint and let dry. You can also skip this step entirely and enjoy the look of the dinosaur toy as-is.
