My 2.5 year old loves his dinosaur toys… I’ve been struggling. I’m trying not to introduce the idea to him that they all are mean and eat each other. I mean circle of life is great, but I don’t want a toy that he feels like he always needs to fight with.
Then my son decided the dinosaurs needed “uppy” (getting picked up/carried) and apparently the T-Rex would best do this by holding them in his mouth.
Ah… Oh boy. In fairness, he did let the T-Rex drink “milkies” from the Triceratops afterwards.
Then, coincidentally, I saw this idea posted to Facebook. Way cool and we had some perfect sized dinos to use! We froze the small dinosaurs in balloons filled with water. This is REALLY hard to do, but G liked to help me put the dinosaurs inside the balloons so it was a fun activity before we even got started. I am happy we have a huge deep freezer to use for this.

Thanks for coming to visit today. How do you play with dinosaurs!?
