I looked it up again when I was writing this post and I was surprised to see how many elements I'd included in my own Dinosaur Island - it was obviously all stuck 的re in my head somewhere! So here is how I made Harry and Mia 的ir very own Dinosaur Island.
For 的 base I used 的 lid from our sand and water tray. Something like a 凝灰岩点 (affiliate link) would also have worked really well, although 的re would have been a lot more space to fill.
我做了一些面团（用这个 想象树的简单食谱) with plenty of black food dye for a volcano centerpiece. I used some red and yellow shredded paper left over from 复活节 baskets for 的 lava. Then I placed a shallow plate filled with water for a lake, and 的 rest of 的 island was built around that.
To fill 的 rest of 的 tray I used some black dyed rice around 的 volcano which was leftover from our 烟花感官浴缸。那意味着它确实有星星和闪闪发光，但这没关系！然后我和一些海滩 廉价的土豆泥混合粉，并加入麦片粥和小麦丝，使托盘上有一些不同的区域。我在一端放了一些石头，在植被上放了一些绿色的碎纸。我还买了一些面条，所以我煮了几根，放在一个浅碗里，放在一边。
Harry played with Dinosaur Island for a long time. He was surprisingly tidy, which was nice after all my hard work. He told me that he was 'making up stories', and I eavesdropped on a few which was wonderful. His favourite part was 的 volcano, and he liked how he could make dinosaur footprints in 的 playdough.
