Theme Weeks: Dinosaurs

Last week we explored the wild world of dinosaurs and volcanoes again.

Wouldn't you know it, Targ*t's "Dollar Section" was full of all kinds of dinosaur goodness.

We collected this herd of dinosaurs (the smaller ones come complete with sound effects).

Dinosaur activity books.
Maze books from here.

And these velvet just-add-water paintings.

We also made a few watercolor paintings for our own.
(I also made that art-holder last week using wooden dowels and yarn for less than $3.)

And no Dinosaur Week would be all that it could be without a few volcanoes.

We made baking soda and vinegar volcanoes in old baby food containers (surrounded by a horrible pasty oatmeal playdough that I would not recommend. :).  

And with leftover soda from our outdoor movie night, we made a few mentos volcanoes.  The diet soda was definitely the best. :)
