For this craft you will need;
(Scientists know that it ate fish. They have found fossilized fish in the stomach area and fish in the jaws of another Pteranodon.)
To make the face cut a strip of paper 1 inch by 5 inches long. It will fit of the bottom of the cup. To make the crest on the back of the head place the bottom of the cup on the paper. Then draw 3/4 of the circle and then finish by drawing a triangle, cut it out.
(A unique feature of this extinct creature was the crest on the head.)
The wings are about 2 1/2 by 11 1/2 inches. The wings look like two teardrops that are hooked together or something like a mustache. Cut the shape out of orange paper.
Place the ring on the bottom of the cup and glue. Fill with cotton. (I used two cotton balls.)
(Only cotton for a brain?)
Now glue the wings to the back.
(hmmm… I once saw an eagle go almost as fast as our car was going. We were going about fifty-miles-per-hour. So I wonder how fast this creature could fly with its big wings).
Add eyes to your creature. I used a hole punch and black paper, but it would look cute with wiggly eyes.
(This paper cup Pteranodon reminds me of Petrie from the movie “The Land Before Time”).
