Dinosaur playdough.

Both my boys are dinosaur crazy, they love to watch them on TV, read about them in books, pretend to be dinosaurs and make up little stories with their little dinosaur figures. They also love playdough so I thought I would combine the two. This kept both kiddos amused, mostly independently, for quite a while. Win! We made 'fossil' impressions and footprints, tried to identify the different dinosaurs and their colours, and practiced rolling out the dough. We also felt the impressions left behind and decided they were bumpy & rough (all for the learning opportunities!) I hid a couple of dinosaurs in balls of dough which Joshua especially found hilarious. I love that he's pretty much over putting playdough in his mouth because gross, and so I can leave them to moulding and pressing and squishing while I get something else done without worrying. This would work with animals too, paw prints and claw prints! 

Bee.
