Dinosaurs- A Blog For Our Grandson

yangchanosarusOur older grandson loves dinosaurs. He knows their names. He draws them. He reads books about them and when he started school this fall we bought him a dinosaur lunch kit. His fourth birthday party included dinosaur party hats, dinosaur paw print cookies, a treasure hunt for dinosaur party favors in a museum filled with dinosaur replicas and fossils, and a cake with a dinosaur and a volcano on it made and decorated by his creative mother. dinosaur hats

A couple of years ago my cousin Lynne even made dinosaur hats and scarves for us and our grandson for Christmas.

The Dinosaur Alive exhibit at Assiniboine Park was fun but it would have been even more fun with our grandson.
