Attach dinosaurs by tying the dinosaur eraser on with a little twine. I used a crochet hook to poke through the cardstock and feed through. A bobby pin or yarn need could also be used.

Or for a really secure way to attach the erasers use a glue gun. This is probably the most secure way to withstand a trip to school in a backpack! The glue easily peels from the back of the dinosaur eraser when the eraser is ready to be used.
