Time to Get Messy!

Grab a smock, and prepare your art area for some messy art (and potentially sensory✋🏿) play! 

1. Just switching up your painting medium can be a magical experience. See how trading paper out for a toy gets your child extra excited and interested in this activity. You may want to set up a contained area for the dinosaurs and keep a washcloth handy.

2. After your child has painted their dinosaurs, you can extend the activity by creating a bath for the dinosaurs! Either add water and soap to your paint container, or throw the dinosaurs in the actual tub with your child. Give them some sponges, washcloths, or old toothbrushes, and they’ll have just as much fun cleaning the dinosaurs as they did making them dirty!
