‘Days of the Dinosaur’


Step back in time and pretend you lived amongst the dinosaurs. Grab some blankets and make a ‘cave den’

Listen out for those big stomping feet! Feel the shake of the ground as they roar!





‘Hide and seek Dinosaur’

Play with a sibling or an adult.


Take it in turns to hide the dinosaurs. Remember, you can hide them behind, underneath, next to or in front of things.


The person finding has to use their language to tell the hider when the dinosaur is found

“It’s behind the sofa”

“It’s underneath the rug”


Let’s get crafty!


Dinosaur fossils are always fun to create. Have a look at some pictures of fossils and try to make your own using cotton buds or raw broken spaghetti. You’ll need some glue and paper to stick your fossil to.

 (M&H, EMM)

Forest School Fun!


Let’s go digging for fossils!

Grab yourself something to dig with and hunt the fossils.

Find a suitable area to dig and see what treasures you can find.

You can use anything you like to mark make with –brushes, sticks or your finger

Using a clock at home look at the numbers around it. Can you identify any of the numerals?

We’re going to find different ways to count to 12. Clapping to 12, stamping to 12 and jumping to 12.

Pointing to different numbers on the clock can you change how many times you do the claps, stamps and jumps?

‘What’s the time Mr Wolf’


Everybody loves a game.

Play with a few members in your household or lots in the setting
