Last Saturday, Mike and I decided to take advantage of my 14-year-old sister visiting to go on a mini-date. Our destination? Our local Michaels craft store, where we picked up these two wooden dinosaur models for $1 apiece. Emma and Johnny put the models together with Mike Sunday and last night, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves each time. Johnny’s dinosaur rarely falls apart, but Emma’s has a habit of losing limbs, so we may need to add some glue so she can play with it a little more. Both kids really enjoy their dinosaurs.
Our kids enjoyed finding the pieces and matching the shapes to the map provided with the wood cuts. This was a great thinking exercise for them, as well as an opportunity for them to practice their fine motor skills. I love finding simple activities like this for the kids!
