Dino week Contd…

Rainy Days are here to stay for the next few months so we are having more indoor days now. Indoor days = not so happy Aarya because he loves outdoors. **sigh** The first post in the Dinosaur post can be found here. I made Dino eggs inspired by a post at Projects for Preschoolers— pinned on my Dinosaur Pinterest Board! In the recipe she shared, they also use sand but as I had only mud, I used that and skipped the sand. The Dino eggs were a bit hard to

Dinosaur Week!

I finally gave into Aarya’s new love, Dinosaurs! And decided to go about designing his time around this Dino theme 🙂 Starting off with a Sensory bin 🙂 This was a last-minute assemble 🙂 I put in – 1) A tub with Flour + cocoa+ water = yummy-smelling-mud. 2) A smaller tub of water with a little blue food coloring 3) Brown beans (Rajma) 4) Lot of Dinos. 1 set same from a Crossword and the other one Wild Republic (via Babyoye.com) Aarya did not like the mud… he smelled and
