I really like the books in Jane Yolen and Mark Teague’s series. Super A particularly likes “How do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?” However, our activity is based on the book “How do Dinosaurs Count to Ten?
Counting Stegosaurus (And yes in the pictures I spelled Stegosaurus wrong…I fixed it later I promise!)
What you need:
green cardstock, brown construction paper, markers, scissors, glue
What you do:
First draw and cut out a stegosaurus(I got a template on-line and copied it)
Then cut out ten small triangles (they do not have to be the same size)
Then count each triangle with your child…
Then number the triangles one through ten. Then glue each triangle to the back of the stegosaurus so the front number is facing out and the glued part is behind.
You can stop here because voila! You have a numbered stegosaurus to count! However Super A likes to color with markers, so we provided the stegosaurus with a proper home on brown construction paper. Like so:
