Adam’s love of all things dinosaur continues. We now have quite a collection of dinosaur themed activities on the blog but we are missing a Dinosaur Tuff Spot (that doesn’t include painting). It just so happens that this weeks Tuff Spot Tuesday challenge theme is to create a Prehistoric Tuff Spot!

We created a Dinosaur Tuff Spot made from leaves and natural materials.
Adam makes a connection between leaves and dinosaurs due to his love of The Land Before Time. In the film, Littlefoot carries a “Tree-Star” (a star-shaped leaf) as they journey to the Great Valley.
So we went in search of Tree-Stars and leaves in our local woods. Adam’s favourite motorbike obviously had to come with us and he had a wonderful time racing down the hills in between finding leaves.
When we returned home Adam and I arranged the leaves within our black Tuff Spot. We grouped the leaves by colour and added the acorns, moss, wood and pine cones to complete our Prehistoric setting. Adam found a few of his favourite dinosaurs and placed them among the leaves.
During our Prehistoric Tuff Spot play Adam enjoyed hiding the dinosaurs among the leaves. A lot of roaring was involved. It is ironic that during our first ever dinosaur sensory activity Adam hated the dinosaur noises I made so much so that I had to adapt the activity. How times change!
