I am so impressed by how much baby girl is growing and changing. It seems like every day she’s learning new things. Activities such as this dinosaur habitat are the perfect way to practice basic preschool skills such as colors and shapes, counting, and even sorting.

As a homeschool mama, I love seeing the little guy and baby girl play together. They learn so much from each other and this activity was a perfect example of that.

It’s so easy to extend STEAM investigations such as this one to include even more preschool themed learning. Little kids can count each of the dinosaur figurines and describe what they’re building.

Either way, they’re practicing lots of skills that are important for early learning and that’s a huge win. After all, children learn best through play.
