We love dinosaurs at my house. It is not just JDaniel that loves them. My very first classroom was decorated with a dinosaur theme. I was thrilled when I saw that Goldilocks And the Three Dinosaurs was going to be the Virtual Book Club book this week. I had the best time listening to JDaniel read his dad and and I the book after dinner last week. Then JDaniel and I both created dinosaurs based on the book on printable playdough mat.

I thought you might want to have your kids make dinosaurs on the play dough mats. They will have a great creating dinosaurs based on the ones in the book! They also have have a great time coming up with their own dinosaurs.
The play dough mats display just the basic large dinosaur pickle shaped head and a set of eyes. The rest of the mat was intentionally left open ended. I wanted to leave the door open for your children and my son to let their creative juices flow. Your children might want to create a dinosaur from the book. Then they might want to create one of their own.
Play Dough Mats and Play Dough Creations
Papa Dinosaur was made using play dough and a plastic fork.
We didn’t have the exact colors that were used for the dinosaur’s hair, teeth and nostrils. We had to decide on colors that were similar or choose brand new colors for them.
JDaniel decided that one of the dinosaurs that we made needed a tongue with saliva dripping off of it. He pointed out that dinosaurs thinking about chocolate filled girls would be drooling.
