Dinosaur Fossil Cookies
Using a basic cookie recipe we transformed ordinary biscuits into fossil food! With the Mini Mes dinosaur toys, we pushed their feet deep into the cookies, almost all the way through, to create prints within them.
110g caster sugar
275g plain flour
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
- Combine the ingredients together to form a dough.
- Roll into small balls and flatten slightly (to around 1cm thickness maximum).
- Push the toys into the cookie rounds to create the prints.
- Cook for 12-15 minutes until golden.
D is for Dinosaur Window Art
With a capital D for the body, this cellophane dinosaur craft not only helps to teach about the alphabet but is pretty to display in windows to allow different colours to shine through into your room.
Draw a large capital d onto the card and cut it out, removing the centre too.
Using the D as a template, cut out a piece of cellophane the same size.
Attach the cellophane to the D using the glue.
Draw feet, a tail and neck with head onto the card, cut out and attach to the D with glue.
Draw on facial features, toes etc.
Allow a few minutes to dry completely.
Display in your window.
This movie is a family favourite where a group of dinosaurs face several challenges and learn about the importance of friendship along the way.
Aladar the iguanodon, separated from his parents as an egg, is raised by lemurs within a jungle. After a meteor shower destroys his homeland his journey begins to find a safe place to live.
