We were DINOSAURS!!
My kiddos loved the dinosaur crafts we made and couldn't wait to show their parents!! :)
On Monday, we had two crafts. We did make the dinosaur headband, but, since the kiddos didn't have much activity with it, we decided to let them paint up a dinosaur coloring sheet! We presented each child with their very own Dinosaur name!! :) Headbands were made from green construction paper, cut into strips and diamond shaped triangles. We used tape so it wouldn't hurt their heads. The "spikes" were glued on at the fold of the diamond shape and again glued together from the tip of the diamond to form the spike!
On Tuesday, we had a roaring blast hatching our dinosaur and dancing to the Dino Diddy Ditty Dum Ditty Do Song!! :) The egg was made from posterboard, and bingo dabbers. The baby dinosaur was colored by the kiddos.
For Wednesday, we had fun making Pterodactyls! These were made from a half regular sized paper plate. The pattern was found on thecrafttrain.com There were many free patterns on this site!! We used tissue paper to cover the back of the plate.
On Thursday, we painted some fingertips and created some rainbow dinosaurs!! We marched around like Dinosaurs. One of our favorite Dinosaur Songs is "What Do You Think of That?" This is a Laurie Berkner Song!
For Friday, we traced the shoes of our children, and they were all able to create their very own dinosaurs! They used some shape stickers, they were able to choose if their dinosaur stood tall or had four legs and crawled on the ground. They also had to name their dinosaur and tell us what their dinosaur liked to eat! The kiddos also chose if their dinosaur had a curvy tail or a straitened tail. Every once in a while you run into technical difficulties. The one picture was turned, and shows turned in my pictures, however, it's showing up side ways, I'm not that savvy with this problem, so sorry about that!! :)
Next week, we will have Fire Safety week, then we will begin our Manners Theme! Getting ready to practice those Manners as we come to school on the last day of the month, in costume and visit each classroom, practicing our Manners as we receive treats and candy! :) The next couple weeks after, we will begin some holiday crafts!
Many Blessings, please count each of them, they surround you!
