Did you know October is National Dinosaur Month? In our house, its dinosaur month every month, but this seemed like a perfect excuse to celebrate with even more fun! I mentioned in this post that we’re starting to homeschool a tiny bit. You can catch many of our adventures over at 3 Boys and a Dog where I serve as a craft writer on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, but I wanted to make sure my readers caught a glimpse of all our fun too!
Here’s what we did this week:
Monday Lesson: Manners
Activity: Read Suppose You Meet a Dinosaur. Talk about manners and practice using manners with one another.
Activity: Salt Dough Dinosaurs
Activity: Make dinosaur shapes and eggs from pattern paper and match together (full tutorial over here!)
Activity: Read Dinosaurs! by Sandra Boynton and 10 Little Eggs by Jean Marzollo.
Wednesday Lesson: Pretend Play
Activity: Play with our dinosaur action figures. My goal was to draw a landscape on old bed sheet to enhance play time, but I didn’t get that far! I was inspired by this post over Growing a Jeweled Rose.
Activity: Play with Dinosaur Train set and read Buddy the Junior Conductor (Dinosaur Train).
Thursday Lesson: D is for Dinosaur
Activity: Painting “D” wooden letter and practicing with it
Activity: Coloring pages from a dinosaur coloring book
Activity: Paper Plate dinosaur
Friday Lesson: Move Like a Dinosaur!
Activity: Dinosaur Walk Song (available on Freegal)
Activity: Dinosaur inspired exercises (stretch your neck, stomp your feet, etc)
Activity: Read Dinosaur Woods Book
