Dinosaur Story Time & Craft

So as I mentioned last time, I have tons of new projects swirling around inside my brain. My head is spinning a bit!

First project: Dinosaur Story Time w/ Make & Take Craft! It was the perfect opportunity last Friday to have the first trial run with our little lady.

Aren’t dinosaurs the rage right now? Boys, girls, toddlers, elementary children – it seems kids everywhere can’t get enough of dinos! Or maybe this dinosaur obsession is nothing new? I’m far from the expert. As a first-time mama, I learn something every day!

Either way, the interest for dinosaurs is definitely there now! Usborne carries over 30 dinosaur books currently, with new ones constantly being released. We for sure have a Dinosaurs Shine-a-Light coming out soon, I imagine that’s going to be a HUGE seller!

So enough talk, let’s get to the activity! I find so many great craft ideas for 2-3 year-olds browsing around Pinterest. Ava isn’t quite ready for those, but I still want to have fun with her, so every now and then, I get a spark of creativity. I came across the idea of using tissue paper and contact paper as a sit still toddler activity, so I figured why not take it a step further and make dinosaurs??

We also read part of Nibbles The Dinosaur Guide. She wouldn’t sit still long enough for I’m a Hungry Dinosaur. Maybe next time!

What do you think? Is this an activity your kiddo would enjoy? If so, I’m planning a local make & take event for this summer!
