Dinosaur Tag

Dinosaur Tag

This is a game we created for Little Dragons Dino Party.  We used this game as a kind of ice breaker/opener.

I bought these awesome masks at Wal-Mart for $.97.  There were two of each face, which was perfect for this game.

We had about 15 kids at the party which is a great amount for Dinosaur tag.

To start the game you have to round up the kids.
Next we picked 2 dinosaurs and they got to put on their cool dinosaur masks!

The Dinosaurs had to chase around the other kids and tag them.
When someone got tagged they had to stand in the cage (we used the climbing dome for our cage but you could use any area you designate as 'cage' or 'jail')

Now the tricky part is tagging all of the kids quickly because the kids that have not been tagged can free the other kids from the cage by tagging them.

This is a fast paced game and we played multiple rounds rotating who got to be a dinosaur.  I do have to say I had never played game of tag where so many people wanted to be a dinosaur.  :)

I didn't get any pictures during the party of this game because we were so busy entertaining but we still have the masks and Little Dragon and I took a couple pictures together just for you! 

Thanks for reading, liking, and sharing!

Paint Squirt Gun Fight

I was waiting for the perfect opportunity to do this activity ever since I saw a post about painting with squirt guns.

Paint squirt gun fight!  And it was AMAZING! 
I first bought an 8 pack of large boys white t-shirts.  I wanted the shirts to fit all of the kids and I wanted them to be able to save the shirts for the future. The 8 pack was perfect.
I filled the water guns up with paint and a pinch of water.  Each gun had a different color so we could determine a 'winner'. 
I squirted each 'player' with their color first.  So they knew their color and to demonstrate where to aim. 

Talking about the aim was very important.  All of the kids involved were 4 and above.  Aim had to be in the tummy or the back.  No faces, bottoms, heads/hair, or legs. We didn't want paint in eyes, noses, or mouths. The other places would be more difficult to clean and giving two aiming places was simple.����������������������������������������������������������������������������������������…

Teeth Craft

This craft went with our meat eater unit you can see here

I was having a difficult time thinking of activities for meat eaters.  I didn't want the sole focus to be on dinosaurs because carnivores and herbivores is a way to categorize many animals today. But everything I was running into was dinosaur related. 
Finally I found this craft! 

paper template of a carnivore and herbivore (I drew a hippo and t-rex head outline) page of teethscissorsgluemarkers

Little Dragon cut out the heads and then the mouth pieces. 
Then he cut out the teeth and glued them inside the mouth
To finish it he drew eyes on the head and a tongue on the inside of the mouth. 

Little Dragon was very excited to see the finished animals and open their mouths to look at their teeth.

We wrote what the animal was on the inside

This was a fun easy craft that helps identify the difference in the teeth between carnivore and herbivore.  It is a visual reference that can be used again and again.  It can also be used for…

Elephant Faces

Elephant Faces (masks)
We used: 

Three paper platesPaint or markersPaint brushesStaplerScissorsYarnFirst paint the bottom of the paper plate.  While the kids painted I cut the other paper plate in half for the ears. Using the third plate I cut out the textured part of the plate to make the trunks.  
Paint (or color) the rest of the pieces. 
Staple them together to make an elephant.
Cut out small holes for eyes and small holes behind the ears to attach the yarn.

Now that the lesson is over I have the masks hanging in the playroom.  They make a neat decoration.
