As part of Craftulate‘s 5-day series titled “Play, Craft and Learn with Dinosaurs”, we combined some learning with some fine motor skills. Nico’s been working on writing his uppercase letters, so I thought it would be fun to steer away from the writing work sheet and use a salt tray.
Little Bins for Little Hands issued a challenge to set up a rice bin for your child with nothing in it but white or brown rice and let your child decide what to put in. We did.

After Christmas was done we decided to keep one of the small trees out and decorate it according to the different holidays or seasons going on. Our first holiday after Christmas is Valentine’s Day!
