Around our house we are obsessed with Dinosaurs and we can't get enough of The Very Dizzy Dinosaur. I found this darling pop of book in the bargain section at Barnes and Noble. Gus' dad loves dinosaurs and he has shared that love with Gus. He was even a dinosaur for his first Halloween. We recently visited the dinosaur park in Ogden, UT so I couldn't resist featuring one of our favorite dino books this week.
This week's book:
Supplies for activities:
- Green Ballon
- Construction Paper
- Tissue Boxes
- White Sponges
- Paper Plate
- Popsicle Stick
Activity #1...Dino Feet
Lately Gus has been obsessed with walking around in mom and dad's shoes so this activity was perfect for him. Just take 2 empty tissue boxes and glue white sponge toes cut in triangles towards the top. Then slip those tiny toddler feet into each box and let your little dinosaur run wild!
Activity #2...Brachiosaurus Balloon
Most little ones love balloons so we love any activity that involves balloons. Just blow up a green balloon and attach the construction paper head and feet. This little guy provided great entertainment to my Gus.
Activity #3...Triceratops Mask
Triceratops was my favorite dinosaur growing up so this activity was my favorite. To create this cute mask just paint a paper plate green, cut 2 eye holes, and add 3 horns. Last just glue a popsicle stick to the finished product and you have yourself a fun triceratops mask!
Activity #4...Dino Sandwich
I am sure that most of you can relate to a toddler that refuses to eat. Gus can be the very best eater one day and the worst the next day. As we were looking for ways to get him excited about eating, these dinosaur sandwiches did the trick. Cookie cutters to the rescue, your average PB&J sandwich turned dinosaur is always a good idea!
