Ankylosaurus pillow…sorry for the out of order posts

on March 3, 2012

During our dinosaur unit we made a ankylosaurus pillow.  I free hand drew, on an old sheet, the outline of the dinosaur.  Then I stitched it together. (Next time I will make this a multi-day activity and have the children help assemble the dinosaur, or make smaller versions so every child can have one).  We read the book Dazzle the Dinosaur, as a comparison to our nonfiction books about dinosaurs, and we discussed that this book was a fiction book because real dinosaurs do not have sparkly skin (as far as we know).   We stuffed it full of shredded paper, then the kids painted and bedazzled it with sequins and glitter.  Image
