(Only I went home with fabric paint on my clothes which is quite a feat when working with 3 year olds.)
I ironed the fabric to heat set the paint so that it would be permanent and could be washed.
I asked a lovely mother if she would bring her sewing machine in to the class to sew the tails while the children watched her.This in itself was a fabulous learning experience.
Once she had sewn up the dinosaur tails the children filled their tails with toy filler. What 3 year old wants to fill their tail with toy filler when you can throw the filling? ( The toy filler looks just like SNOW and perfect to throw........ Everywhere !! )
Finally (after cleaning up all of the toy filler) we sewed elastic around their waist. The children put them on and they LOVED them.
Tomorrow we are going to wear our tails and sing our favourite dinosaur song for all the parents.
