Last Monday night our theme for family night was dinosaurs. I stole a couple of ideas from Heather, but I had a few of my own, too.
During the day the boys wore their dinosaur t-shirts while we ran errands. And while we were out, I found dinosaur coloring books for 75 cents each, so we bought a couple of those. Caden colored. Jacob snacked on crayons.
When Geric got home we got dressed up like cavemen and a cavewoman. Geric wouldn’t get in the picture and Caden refused to take off his dino t-shirt, so here’s me and Jacob. Don’t I look nice? I was lookin’ so good I was sure some caveman was bound to come along and club me over the head and drag me back to his cave!
For dinner we ate dinnosaur eggs and for the leaf eaters we had some leaves.
While the boys were napping during the day, I made these dinosuar feet out of pasta boxes and craft foam. It’s amazing what can be done with a glue gun! So after dinner they put their dinosaur feet on and had a race.
(There’s Ger in his caveman attire… shhhhhhh, don’t tell him!)
After the races Geric read “Can I Have a Tyrannosaurus Rex Dad?” to Caden while Jacob helped me get dessert ready.
Then we had dessert. Homemade chocolate lava cakes. Mmmmmmmmm!
If you’re not doing this with your family yet, what are you waiting for??? It’s not hard. You can totally steal my ideas. (They aren’t all mine!) And it’s so much fun! Think of all the memories you’d be making!
