Friday morning we woke up bright and early to go to Dinosaur Day at The Central Library (A Free Event). We walked along the San Antonio Riverwalk to catch a trolley to the Library. We could see all the lights hanging from the trees and cant wait for them to be all turned on during the Christmas season.We got to the library and I love the renovations they did with the grassy area and the nice outdoor reading nook(that's what I would use it for on a nice day).
On the children's floor everything was dinosaur from the signs on the walls to the books on top of the shelves. It was fun to discover what was behind every turn.
Yes I did dress my munchkin in dinosaur apparel. Isn't he adorable?
They started off the class with a song and then a game of dinosaur behind the door(like ants in the pants). Then We read a book about dinosaurs. We then went on to do centers all with dinosaur themes. Here's a glimpse of the activities:
Dinosaur books and magnets
Playdough to make dinosaur prints inHugging the dinosaur inflatable(there was inflatable Dinos and stuffed ones)
Different dinosaur footprints
Sensory tubs that consisted of Dino's, bird seed, rice, beans, flowers and extras
Take Home information and cut outsIt was a great experience and fun for the kids. There were more activities like pattern matching and blocks and magnets. My munchkin really enjoyed it and so did the other kids. They got to play and learn about dinosaurs and I cant wait for another event like this.
