Activities for Kids

Welcome to the first week of Activities for Kids! Since this is the first in what I hope to be a regular, weekly posting of themed activities for your kiddos, there may be things that still need tweaking. I totally welcome your comments and suggestions. Please let me know if you used these ideas and how your kiddos liked them!

Make cut out’s of feet for dinosaur hop (will do tomorrow)
Dd book


Play Dinosaur Hop
Paper Plate dinosaur
Finish Dd book


Make volcano for Friday
Stegosaurs clothespin craft


Make fossil imprints into play dough (as simple as gathering small toys and seeing what the imprint looks like in play dough and comparing that to the original object)
Make dinosaur in the “dirt” craft


Make volcano “erupt”
Use paint brush to find “fossils” (aka random objects) in sand table.
Dinosaur matching game (like memory with dinosaurs)

Supplies Needed (other than “typical” stuff like construction paper, paint, glue, etc.)

      Thank you! I need to put more weekly units together. Knowing that someone uses them lights a little fire under me…:-) we’ve had sick kiddos for the last few weeks so not much is getting done!
