Today, we made fossil and dinosaur cookies. We used this ginger cookie recipe, a dinosaur sandwich cutter, raisin eyes, and toy dinosaurs. Christopher had fun!
One of the finished cookies:
I hung up a string on which to hang Christopher’s finished artwork so he could look at it. That definitely got him more excited about making pictures! Soon as he finishes one, he points to the string and tells me to put it up. He also had me hang up some dinosaur flash cards. I got a pack at Target for $1 recently and gave him 5 different ones of dinosaurs he might recognize. He can now identify the t-rex, the triceratops, the stegosaurus, and the pteranodon. He loves pteranodons from Dinosaur Train.
Here’s a picture of the string after I hung it up the other night. Now it’s full, with pictures overlapping.
