The Dinosaur Train, Caitlin's New Favorite Show

For all of my readers, who have small children, Caitlin would like you to check out her new favorite show. Jim Henson has created a new show for PBS, called Dinosaur Train. It really is a cute, and educational show. They learn all about Dinosaurs, and the years they lived on earth. If your kids like dinosaurs, you need to check it out 9:30 AM every weekday, on PBS, which is channel 11 on Direct TV. Tomorrow for arts, and crafts we are making apple frames. To do these simple frames all you need is an apple, cut in half. Various colors of paint, and picture frames. I bought foam ones, from the craft section. Then dip the apple, into the paint, and press it onto the frame. I will take pictures of ours tomorrow, after we do them.

I can understand why kids love dinosaurs. I myself was fascinated with dinosaurs when I was a kid.

Mom thank you so much. I will check it out.

Leomar, here in the states they spend like the first 4 yrs of school studying dinosaurs. I guess they have to like them LOL. My son still likes them, and is fascinated by them.

My son was obsessed with dinosaurs from about age 4 to 7. He would love this show!
