Quick Pick & Project of the Week: Dinosaur Stomp Painting

We're still putting together posts on the fun we had recently with our dinosaur week. We absolutely love the book Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp and it leant itself perfectly to our Quick Pick and Projects of the Week series.

What we love about this book is the rhymes, the use of the actual dinosaur names, and the idea that they are all celebrating somewhere together. It's really upbeat and fun to read aloud. We've gotten it out of our library several times. 

To create our dinosaur stomp paintings we used our collection of toy dinosaurs. Most of our dinosaurs come from an awesome Learning Resources play set we purchased a few years ago. They have different shaped feet, so it made the painting fun because there were different prints. 

Materials included our washable poster paints, white drawing paper, and dinosaurs. We did our project out on the deck, which was probably good in the end as it did get a little messy. 

Both boys were eager to get started. Little Brother especially loves the play dinosaurs and was very interested in the idea of using them with the paint. (He didn't stick with just feet though, he loved dipping all the body parts.) 

I loved hearing both boys making all sorts of dinosaur sounds as they stomped through the paint. We also put on some rock and roll music to paint to too, just like the dinosaurs in the book would've wanted us to!
