If the Dinosaurs Came Back

We recently read If the Dinosaurs Came Back by Bernard Most.  Like most Kinders, mine really enjoyed our "Dinosaur Week."  Our reading series featured this book, and we extended the theme with more dino activities.  We made these cute little dinosaurs for our classroom bulletin board.  I used my trusty Cricut to make the sign.

I used my newest Cricut cartridge, Create a Critter, to make this.
Volcano!  The kids gathered around me as I was making this.  
 
 Cute dinos.  It wasn't until I hung them that I realized that I should have given the kids another color for the bodies.  I love the fabric covering this bulletin board, but I will need to use something other than green for the projects that go onto it.  (I have covered all of my bulletin boards with inexpensive fabric from Walmart.  I like the duribility of fabric - staple holes disappear - and it doesn't fade like paper.)

  2. Thank you! The dinos did turn out cute. But, I must admit I am a big fan of Kinder Art! Another project that I love is our scuba divers. Click on the Ocean label to find them. I wish I had started taking pictures of our projects sooner - there were some wonderful creations!
