Make and paint dinosaurs with craft sets for Christmas

I always look for something crafty for Christmas, just to mix things up a bit. Painting and making dinosaurs craft sets make good presents because a) most kids like dinosaurs as they're not deemed 'for girls' or 'for boys' and b) no one really knows what dinosaurs looked like so their imaginations can go wild!
