On this blog, I will share my ideas for an at-home preschool that I do with my children, ideas for surviving motherhood, library story time ideas, ideas for my various LDS callings, Family Home Evening ideas, and whatever other random ideas that I have. I borrow ideas from the world of great minds and will try to give credit as much as possible. Thanks for dropping by!

Art Activity
(Fine motor skills activity)
Make “D” fossils and handprints in playdough. 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup (give or take) water. Knead until dough forms. Make impression. Bake at 200 for 3 hours.

Dinosaur sandwiches: Pb&J sandwiches in the shape of a dinosaur.
 (Gross motor skills activity)
Dinosaur Googly Eye Search- Hide googly eyes  and a little dinosaur in playdough and then search for them.  (This is a wonderful fine motor activity).  The children love hiding them for the Mommies to find.  Then the mommies hide them and the children search for them.

Now we wave good-bye,
Good-bye, good-bye.
Now we wave good-bye,
