Banana Bread Protein Bites

My boys loved the Carrot Cake Protein Bites so much I decided to try making a new variation. I really need to make these in larger batches though because they get eaten in only a couple days. The boys love them so much. Plus I added these into my bento boxes for dinners. Banana Bread …

A Craft a Day

A Craft a Day: D is for Dinosaurs

This week is all about dinosaurs and I found way too many fun ideas!! My list was overflowing with great crafts!

If you are new to A Craft a Day

A Craft a Day gives you five activities that you can enjoy with your kids, one for each day of the week.  Most of these activities work well for preschoolers, but you may be able to adapt them for your toddler. If you want to learn more about the basics of A Craft A Day you can find them at a Craft a Day: Coming Back Soon. I will post the crafts on Saturdays so you can use the weekend to get any supplies that you may need. We are making our way through the alphabet this year so if you missed a you can find it here.

Are you Supermom?

Now I’m not supermom and I don’t expect you to be either. We don’t always get to each activity, sometimes life is just too busy. Hopefully you may try one or two of these activities with me and my kids! You don’t have to do every single one. You don’t have to be doing preschool with your child. I just hope to give you a resource for some great fun with your kids!

The Crafts:


  • Color Science: Drip Drop Dinosaurs – I’ve been wanting to do this project for a while, but decided to pull it out today. We drew dinosaurs but you could actually draw anything.
  • dinosaur 1

  • Dinosaur Dig – I actually made these “egg” then I buried them in a bucket of dirt. I actually did this with Zane when he was younger too. It was so fun we had to do it again
  • Pipe Cleaner Dinos – I wasn’t sure if Zane could do these but I wanted to challenge him to try.
  • Dinosaur Stomp – I saw these and fell in love! We had to do them. I knew both boys would love running around in them, who cares if I needed to buy 4 boxes of tissues!

Supplies: cocoa, sugar,butter, milk, food color, peanut butter, oats, Elmer’s glue, salt, card stock, pipe cleaners, bucket, dirt, sand, flour, salt, water, plastic dinos, tissue boxes, duct tape, paint, kitchen sponge

Dinosaur Bone Cookies

I remember making these no bake cookies with my mom when I was little. Of course we just made them we didn’t associate them with Dinosaurs. I loved how Stacie renamed these cookies and gave each ingredient a creative dino twist. You can check out her recipe here: Dinosaur Snacks: Yummy and Icky Treat.

Ingredients: Sugar (crushed bones), Butter (fat), Oatmeal (Dead Grass), Peanut Butter (Dead Bugs), Cocoa (Dirt), & Milk w/Green Food Color (Swamp Water)

The boys spooned out the cookies (though halfway I had to take over)

Zane practiced his letters while we waited for them to cool

They loved these cookies! My husband super duper loved them! I was surprised to find each cookie only 128 calories and way worth it!
