Dinosaur Story Time!

Story Time with Lion Cubs was last week! We had a ROARING good time with DINOSAURS!

I made a Spotify Dinosaur themed playlist.

There were dinosaur name tags.

I printed out an actual size dino footprint from this website and started the story time by inviting them to try and guess what it was. Then, they compared their footprint size to the dinosaur footprint – dinosaurs were BIG!

I read Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs by Barton.

We did the “Dino Pokey”

I read Dinosaur Kisses by Stein (the illustrations crack me up)

I love using my storytelling mitten and Mitt Magic...this month, 5 Little Dinosaurs! (this is a link to a PDF with LOTS and LOTS of great dinosaur fingerplays and fun for story time!)

Did a little dinosaur movement activity with “Dinosaur, Dinosaur Turn Around” (you can find the words in the PDF linked above)

Finished the story time portion of our fun with Dinosaur vs the Library by Shea (there was a lot of ROARING with this one!)

The craft was to make a dinosaur out of various shapes. Got the idea from this blog. I made a sample, but I also had a print out of this at each table so that they could get more ideas.

The snack was little bags of gummies that I found at Aldis. Dinos and Sharks! I bought a few boxes…so, a shark theme will be coming up soon 😉

So fun!
