    Great ideas! Love this post! We’re huge dinosaur fans and love the How Do Dinosaurs books. They are so cute! If I can, I’ll share a link to some of our other favorite dinosaur books in case your little one might like them, too :)


    My son also loves to make dinosaur fossils in his play dough, both the footprints and the side profile like you did with your salt dough. We’ll play that guessing game forever — he loves it!

    Have fun, and thanks for sharing!
    :) Lauren
