Everyone needs a little downtime, and kiddos on summer break are no different. So we took today to just chill and spend the day at home. But that didn’t mean we couldn’t still sneak a little dino-themed fun into the day.
While hubs and I did a little prep work for the kids visit next week, Bubbles grabbed a stack of her favorite dinosaur books and curled up on the couch.
The books we have include a mix of fact books, chapter books, graphic novels, sticker books and more. Books can definitely get expensive, so be sure to check for sales at your local library, yard sales, or salvage/overstock stores to help keep costs more manageable (especially if you have a voracious reader).

She has a big dinosaur buddy named Roary that doubles as a body pillow – perfect for relaxing while she reads. And thanks to our friends at Wild Republic, she had a new friend join her reading time: a new plush dinosaur named Rexy.
Rexy is SO soft and snuggly, even with his fearsome mouthful of felt teeth, and Bubbles loves him. After taking a peek at all the other Wild Republic stuffed animals I know where I’ll be turning for Christmas gifts this year; the Glitter Triceratops is going to have to make an appearance under the tree.
If you need a snack after all that reading, try our Jurassic Dirt Pudding Cups recipe! They’re super-easy and really tasty too.
