We learned about the letter D today, so our art project had to do with dinosaurs (one of my favorite themes). A couple of days ago, I brought in some Model Magic by Crayola. I flattened out a small amount for each child and asked the kids to pick out a small plastic dinosaur. They pushed it into the "clay."
Fun Fact: Pteranodons, or any of the flying prehistoric creatures, were not dinosaurs. They were related to the dinosaurs, but true dinosaurs could not fly.
