Do you know how big the biggest dinosaur egg ever to be discovered was? About as big as a 12-inch balloon! Kids love this..
Slowly blow up a 12-inch balloon, telling children you're going to show the how big the biggest dinosaur egg discovered is. You can stop along the way at the chicken egg, and the largest egg today, the ostrich (about 6 inches). Then slowly keep blowing until you get to the full 12 inches. Tie a knot, and toss it behind you.
Now sing the traditional song, Here's a Baby Birdie, beginning curled up in a ball, then move body, changing the words to:
Here's a baby dinosaur, he's hatching from his shell
Out comes his head, then comes his tail
Next his legs he stretches, he gives a great big ROAR
Then he stomps and stomps and stomps and sits back on the floor.
Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, BOOM!
If you don't know the song Here's A Baby Birdie you'll find it in the free song library at www.SingWithOurKids.com. It should be up tomorrow or Sunday.
