Anyhoo, The boys had a blast making these paper mache dinosaur eggs with some friends! We will be finishing them up next week with another layer and some paint!
We used a simple no cook flour and water recipe 1:1 What a messy craft but a ton of fun! I have no idea what this face is all about!
Carrot Top had fun joining in on our Dinosaur fun. He really only wanted to play with the dinosaurs, but I tried to get some other stuff in. LOL Here he is sorting the regular animals from the dinosaurs.
We did simple counting by placing one dinosaur in each little box on this Melissa and Doug horse display that I rescued from the garbage!
Thanks for reading about our week!You can expect weekly wrap ups every Saturday! We can not do Friday recaps because we school Tues-Fri usually. I HATE Mondays! Anyone else? We have lots of crafts for next week that I will be posting throughout the week, and than the weekly wrap up will be our finished lapbook! Have a great weekend!
I used a wooden dinosaur building set I had, and buried it in our Cheerio Sensory Bin. I would have used sand but it is in the shed which is under construction. Fast Eddy pretended he was a Paleontologist and discovered the bones.
