Dinosaurs swamp- Helena was a little reluctant to get messy at first. She explored each of the items in the tray before she went for the jelly. She squished around to rescue the hidden dinosaurs and we also added water to her play. She even decided to dip her toes in! I used Jelly for the swamp with some added food colouring to make it a brownish green. #dinosaursactivities #dinosauractivitiesforkids #jellyplay #messyplay #tastesafe #babyplay #sensory #dinosaurs #sensoryexperience #playwithyourkids #sensorytray #invitationtoplay #playislearning #playmatters #earlylearning #toddlerplayideas #kidsplayideas #learningmeetsplay #learningthroughplay #kidslearning #learningisfun #learningmadefun #littlelearners #simplychildren #toddlerplay #toddleractivities #earlylearning101 #totsschool

On Monday we visited @museumofscience and my mom got Imm a set of plastic dinosaurs that she won’t put down. Yesterday morning we checked out a bunch of dino books from @watertownpublib (thanks to the awesome librarian who pulled them for us in the middle of new carpet installation). Last night we decided that, in light of the impending nor’easter, today would be Dinosaur Day. We invited Imm’s bff to join us. We read books, searched for hidden dinosaurs around the house, hammered some dinos out of ice, and danced to We Are the Dinosaurs by Laurie Berkner. Smashing success! We might do this every month! #dinosaurday #dinoactivities #toddlerbooklove #toddlerbffs #waitingforspring #laurieberkner #laurieberknerband #wearethedinosaurs
