More dinosaur activities

A few more of the dinosaur themed things we've been up to....

We made dinosaur shaped cookies.

That's Cherry's little fingers pressing the dough into the cookie cutter (Being gluten intolerant I chose a choc chip cookie recipe that works well and we squished it onto the cutter rather than a roll out dough to cut that would taste awful!)
They turned out triceratopsish...

I also tried to add a few more activities to the shelf that Cherry would be interested in.
Here she is matching some dinosaur shaped rubber bands to some colour cards. lamb matched the bands to his dinosaur breed cards.
We also did some size sorting that I got from 1+1+1=1

The highlight for us was of course the trip to the museum!
Lamb was super excited!
He raced from one skeleton to the next talking about what they looked like AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS. My children generally speak loudly but people around us couldn't help but give us that smile that says "Wow, he's really into dinosaurs huh?"

Lamb also played several of the games on this website
