We have teamed up with 15 bloggers from around the world to bring you a Dinosaur Busy Bag Blog Hop. As you can imagine Adam was extremely excited by this theme. Regular readers will know that Adam adores Dinosaurs and they have inspired several play activities. I decided to use the dinosaur busy bag blog hop to create a How Do Dinosaurs Learn Colours and Numbers Busy Bag.

Adam is a huge fan of the “How Do Dinosaurs” series. We have already created a How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You play activity. How Do Dinosaurs Learn Colours and Numbers? by Jane Yolen and Mark Teague started Adam’s desire for numbers and is the reason he started to count from an early age.
I wanted to create a busy bag based on the two themes of colours and numbers. We have Dinosaur counters, a pack of 128 red, green, yellow and blue coloured dinosaurs in four species.
First we focused on dinosuar colours. I printed the Dinosaur Cone Characters from Twinkl and placed them on the table. Adam had to sort his dinosuar counters and place them next to the correct coloured dinosaur cone. He did this without any problems. The dinosaur counters proved a little tricky to stand up so it was a great fine motor activity too.
Adam had to identify the numeral and place the correct number of dinosaur counters next to it. As well as testing his mathematical development Adam also had to use spacial awareness to position the dinosaurs so that they didn’t get mixed up with an adjacent number. He then repeated the activity with dinosuars numbered 10-15 and 16-20.
Our How Do Dinosaurs Say Colours and Numbers Busy Bag was easy to set up and has endless possibilties for further play.
