T Rex Says:
We used the same action cards from the story again for this Simon Says type activity. Madelynn doesn’t quite get the concept yet, but we have been trying out several themed Simon says games. I picked a card and then called out the action for her to follow.
Fruit Dinosaur – Cut slices of watermelon, pineapple and strawberries. Build a dinosaur with the shapes.
Dinosaur Quesadilla – Use a dinosaur shaped cookie cutter to cut 2 tortillas into dinosaur shapes. Sprinkle cheese on one tortilla. Place the other tortilla on top. Microwave for 20 seconds.
Cheerio Volcano – Mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup corn syrup in pan and bring to a boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat, add 1/4 cup peanut butter and 1/4 tsp. vanilla to pan and mix until smooth. Add 1 1 1/4 cup Cheerios and mix until coated. Drop mixture onto waxed paper and mold into volcano shapes. Allow to cool then top with red icing.
Dino Dig Parfait – Layer vanilla pudding, cheerios, granola, marshmallows, and whipped cream in a clear plastic cup. Top with green icing and a plastic dinosaur.
Dinosaur Bones – Push mini marshmallows onto either end of pretzel sticks. Melt white candy melt in the microwave for 1 minute. Dip pretzel “bones” in white melt then place on waxed paper to harden.
