You will need, Graham Cracker Crumbs (Dirt), Cocoa Puffs (Rocks) and Gummy Dinosaurs
Have the kids crush up the graham crackers themselves so they understand that it's really not dirt! Then have them layer the ingredients in the above order. This is a great way to teach them patterning. They loved digging up their dinosaurs and they all thought it was funny that they were eating "dirt" and "rocks"!

Dancing, dancing all around.
Each one is different, it's surely true,
Here's some I made, from me to you!
These were the hardest to do out of all of them. I only used their fingers. I turned the paper instead of having them try to turn their hand.
Two Red Valentines,
Three Red Valentines,
I'll snip an cut and color and past,
And then make twenty more!
I didn't paint their thumbs for the heart. I turned the paper upside down to make their heart look right side up when I turned the paper around.
Can't you see?
I'm as tiny as can be.
I only come around just once a year,
That's when St. Patrick's Day is here!
Just paint their hand in layers and then turn the paper upside down to make the leprechaun look right side up when you flip the paper around. He is one of my favorites!
He'll spin himself a blanket and the go fast asleep.
Fuzzy, wuzzy, caterpillar will wake up by and by,
To find his wings of beauty changed to a butterfly.
I painted both hands, but I only did one hand with the thumb painted so when I did the other hand I didn't have to try to match up the thumbs.
Snapping at everything in his reach.
He snapped at you and he snapped at me,
Then he went on his way happy as can be!
You have to paint both hands for the crab and it helps to turn the paper instead of having them turn their hands!
Apples yellow, green and red, apple juice, or pie or bread,
Apples crunchy, apples sweet, apples are so good to eat!
When we did the apples I only painted the palms of their hands. The stem and leaf are their fingerprints!
Hoping no one eats him is his wish.
Along comes a little hand that grabs a bunch,
MUNCH, MUNCH, MUNCH!
Don't paint the thumb on the candycorn. I painted the top of their fingers white, but it's kind of hard to see!
This isn't just a turkey as anyone can see,
I made it with my hand which is a part of me.
It comes with lots of love especially to say,
I hope you a very Happy Thanksgiving Day!
I think everyone has made a handprint turkey at one time or another, whether it was your hand or someone elses. Very easy and simple to do!
Here are my branches for you to decorate.
First you put the star on the very top,
Just be careful the balls don't drop!
When you paint their hand, don't paint their thumb. The ornaments and star are made with their fingerprints, and the trunk is made with their finger!
