Right before Father's Day, I shared a post about fun Dinosaur Train happenings, as well as shared a printable Father's Day greeting card Moms could print out for their children to color for Dad. My girls had a blast coloring and adding to stickers to their Dinosaur Train Father's Day card, in which I stuck a photo of each them in the photo frame of the picture. My husband, who is a fan of the show, thanks to the girls -- well, he looks forward to sitting down each night with them while I finish dinner and watches that day's Dinosaur Train episode, which was recorded, but also watched. While the girls had already seen the episode earlier in the day, they still love to cuddle up with their Daddy to watch it again. So, my husband was over the moon when the girls handed him their homemade Dinosaur Train Father's Day cards. :-) Now, he has them hanging in his cubicle at work, and can look at the girls' picture and get excited about coming home to watch this show with them.

Yesterday, the girls received a fun surprise in the mail. The kind folks at The Jim Henson Company sent along the same sticker book I am giving away, for them to enjoy. Usually I have to buy two of everything, so that they don't find, but the girls surprised me last night and worked together to place the 75+ reusable stickers throughout the book. They brought the 16 pages of mini stories about Buddy's favorite trips to life, just by adding these fun stickers. :-)
"Everyone enjoys taking fun trips, including DINOSAUR TRAIN’S Buddy! Buddy fans everywhere are sure to enjoy the new sticker stories from Penguin Young Readers Group, Buddy’s Favorite Trips. With over 75 stickers, this sticker stories book takes fans on a ride on the Dinosaur Train and features… that’s right… Buddy's favorite trips! For ages 3-5; SRP $6.99; available wherever books are sold! To browse all the Dinosaur Train books, go to www.penguin.com/dinosaurtrain."
The girls had a great time helping their Daddy place the stickers on the right pages, and when they were done, snuggled up next to him, so that he could read the stories out loud. Here is a photo I snapped of Savannah sitting with her Daddy, as she helps him place the stickers in the right places, while wearing a Dinosaur Train ring (can be placed on a cupcake to decorate it) :-)
This sticker book would make for a fun rainy day activity, or as a surprise gift for your children, after they have read a summer reading book!
