Check this out if you can’t get enough of dinosaurs!

The Catalano family used to live in Williams Lake, British Columbia. But they decided to move to Perth, Australia.

When they arrived in their new country, they had to quarantine inside a hotel for 14 days because of COVID-19.

While inside their hotel room, they needed fun ways to keep themselves and their three-year-old daughter, Florence, busy. So they built a 1.5-metre tall dinosaur out of takeout containers!

How did they do it?



They used an ironing board for the body and covered it with scales made from cut-up paper bags and takeout food containers. Then they used cotton balls for the teeth and cut up plastic spoons for the eyes.

Rawr! That bagasaurus is taller than you!

It took the family about 20 hours to make their bagasaurus. When they left the hotel, they took the dino head with them and recycled the rest of the body.
