I want a Ponysaurus!

So my son's first birthday is coming up, and the theme is dinosaurs.

I want to turn my white horse Mellow into a ponysaurus for the kids to ride, and I want some ideas how to do it-- specifically how I can make him a different color. He's not a big fan of things in spray cans, and I'm not sure what kind of paint or color I could just brush on or use my hands for.

Any tips or pictures would be appreciated!

In the wizard of OZ I believe they used jello powder for the color changing pony - which is why he keeps trying to lick himself. You could try the or maybe some type of child - non toxic sidewalk chalk thay will rinse off.

I do have some sidewalk chalk-- I'll try that out tomorrow! And I'm going to look up about the Jell-o. That's interesting!

You sound like a super cool mom!! Can you make a costume out of fabric and drape it over him like a blanket and neckcover. Maybe with some kind of Dinosaur hood? I would go to the craft store instead of trying to die his hair. I have seen some cool Halloween pics on here.

I know they make hair dyes for dogs that you can brush on. It is thick - kinda between a paste and a gel. Make sure to wear gloves or you'll be dinosaur colored too!
I want pictures post after the party! I'd love to see how your pony turns out.

I have also heard of using Kool-aid for temporary nontoxic hair color. My roommate has done this for temporary fun with highlights. Basically you just get a Kool-aid packet featuring whichever color you desire, mix it with a cup or two of warm water (without the sugar so it doesn't become a sticky mess!)... then take a sponge or a paint brush and apply it liberally to the coat. Massage it in, let it dry... and you should have a wild colored critter!!

I'm going to test out some of these ideas before the party-- his birthday isn't until March so I've got some time. I do kinda like the idea of making something out of fabric. He's not a big horse, so it wouldn't take more than a couple yards.

Here are a few I found! How cute. I would think a sleezy would work great and the kids could still ride. (: Can't wait to see pictures!

Yeah, a sleezy would be best, but I don't think I could afford one just for the party :(
