What a great idea and so durable!  I can imagine a dino trophy for the one to read the most as well.

These are a hoot!

Thanks! Yesterday, a girl picked one up (off of the bookcase, where it was holding up books), and asked me what it was for. I guess she is truly a child of the digital age!

What a great idea and so durable!  I can imagine a dino trophy for the one to read the most as well.

Thanks! I think they'll hold up pretty well. I was able to lift one of them up by the dinosaur, and the dino didn't pull off of the paver. 

I don't track the books they read in my class, but maybe I can make a trophy for the Language Arts teacher. The kids have weekly reading logs they need to complete, so maybe she can give an award to the kid who completed all of them (a set of bookends would be very appropriate!). I'll have to propose that to her. Thanks for the idea!

What a clever idea! I have purchased a few pairs of bookends for my shelf but they are never actually sturdy enough to hold my books. I am going to have to decorate some bricks!

You definitely should! The hardest part was waiting for things to dry: first the glue, then the paint!

They were pretty fun to make! And, every once in a while, my students rearrange them to simulate dinosaur battles. Right now, they've collected them all on one set of bookshelves and pairs of dinos are attacking one another. It just occurred to me that my students might not actually realize that they are there to hold up the books...   Cheesy

My wife and I have looked at a lot of bookends in stores over the years, but still have zero bookends.  Nothing has quite had the style we wished.  These are awesome tho, and something I'm going to experiment with!  Yes, I just want to play with dinosaurs. lol

They definitely get the job done! If I had smaller dinosaurs, I might have used smaller bricks (I have some square pavers in the basement), but these are nice and hefty and do a great job of holding up the books.
