Here’s a special treat for you today. I recently came across this adorable DIY project which would make for some afternoon fun. This is so easy you won’t need superior sewing skills to make this. This is for a strap-on dinosaur tail that’s perfect for pretend play and as Halloween costume.

Perfect for Halloween, play costume, and parties!

Depending on the type of fabric that you choose to work with, girls and boys will surely enjoy these tails. My daughter wore it every day for one whole month. She could be a fairy or a princess, only with a dragon tail. Sometimes, she’d pair it up with a bright-colored tutu.

Your kids will love this, that’s a guarantee. It stimulates creativity and imagination. They love swishing the tails back and forth, or dragging them while walking around the neighbourhood. They already asked me to make more for some of their friends.
