Six well-crafted dinosaurs (momma and baby T.Rex, Stegosaurus and Brachiosaurus) are ready to roam the playroom floor.

In conjunction with the sheer fun of playing with the dinosaurs, our preschoolers learned plenty. We paired the mommas and babies and compared and contrasted size, shape, color, texture, length of arms, legs, and tails. We counted the dinosaurs "fingers and toes" and then walked and ran like the dinosaurs. And the four and five year olds try to pick up things with two fingers and no thumbs like a T-Rex, which lead to a discussion about children with disabilities. There's nothing prehistoric about these lessons.
