One of my favorite letter lessons is Letter D is for Dinosaur. Fun craft, excellent hands-on activity and loads of learning fun!
This craft was one of the highlights of our D is for Dinosaur day in our preschool class, along with the ever-popular DIY Dinosaur Egg Learning Activity.
The key to the success of this paper plate craft is two-fold.
- ONE: Mark each plate with a pattern prior to class.
- TWO: Plan the painting portion for early morning and the construction phase for afternoon when the paint has dried.
- Tip #1: for a large group of children, write their names on the plate BEFORE painting so that you can tell them apart.
- Tip #2: have at least one extra plate pattern handy in case someone makes a “boo boo.”
