Tot School - Dd

Tot School - Dd is for Dinosaurs, Dogs and Dr. Seuss
Owen & Eli: 37 months

Dinosaurs
I had big plans for this week - my boys love dinosaurs and I knew that everything I had planned would be really fun for them. My littlest ended up with a stomach bug for most of the week though, so most of my really fun activities had to be replaced with Dinosaur Train. They didn't mind (because they didn't know any better!) but I was a little disappointed. In case you have more time than I did, I was planning on making dinosaur fossils and getting bones from the meat counter at the grocery store to bleach and hide so they could pretend to be paleontologists. Leave me a comment with your email if you want instructions for the bones! We were able to fit in most of the activities from the Dinosaur Tot Pack from 2 Teaching Mommies and the alphabet tracing page for the letter D. Our paper plate craft this week was a brachiosaurus that they painted, decorated and glued all by themselves!

Dr. Seuss
We read several of Dr. Seuss's books this week and made a hand print craft into Thing 1 and Thing 2 (and added Thing 3 for Garrett!) We used our thumbprints to make Green Eggs too!

I printed most of the Dog Tot Pack to use this week, but I'm going to have to save it to use for P is for Puppies instead (how's that for creative thinking? : ) We would have had time to do those activities if I didn't spend most of my week like this... but I'll take all the snuggle time I can get!

Hope y'all had a great week in Tot School!

Hope your little one is feeling better. The dinosaur pack looks really cute, I will have to check it out for my son! He is just getting into the dino phase.

Sorry your little guy was sick, but it still looks like your boys had a good time.

Looks like a fun week, and your paper plate dinosaurs are adorable!

We've had sick kiddos, too. 'Tis the season, I suppose :( Hopefully he feels better soon!

Bummer that they were sick, but it still looked like a fun week! And I'm sure they didn't mind Dinosaur Train instead! :)

Popping over from Tot School. I like your dinosaur paintings--we're doing D for Dinos next week!
