Fun Time Friday. 15 Dinosaur Activities For Kids

I've decided its time to pull my finger  out, I used to do so many activities with Evie and Jenson and poor little Elsie has always been the one 'left behind' So last week I  planned some simple, quick and easy activities, dinosaur themed because right now she loves herself a dinosaur or two! I thought I would share some of the activities that have kept us busy.

We have a small set of shelves that contain toys that Elsie (and the other monsters) can just grab and play with when they like and then I try and plan at least an extra activity a day, usually something that cant be left out, messy play, paint etc. So the last week on our 'learning shelves' I put dinosaur small world toys, wooden 'tree' blocks, stones, dinosaur themed jigsaws, puzzles, 'D' and 'd' stampers and ink pads, printables, dinosaur theme counting peg boards, dinosaur stickers and a variety of pens and papers.

Easter Popcorn Mix

Its no secret that my kids love a themed popcorn mix they love me to make them for all occasions and as movie nights are our favourite way to spend time as a family, let me tell you, I have made many a mix! Some end up on Instagram, some just get eaten, and some end up here on the blog. The monsters have been bugging me for an Easter mix since they spotted Hop on Netflix (or similar!) a few weeks ago and this weekend they finally got there wish, an Easter popcorn mix perfect for an Easter themed movie night!
