What Were Dinosaurs?

Dinosaurs....first appeared on the Earth around 230 million years ago and they disappeared mysteriously about 65 million years ago. But for nearly 100 million years, various species of dinosaurs ruled over our planet.

     Dinosaurs were lizards. Some were huge, the biggest creatures ever to exist. The Diplodocus was 26 metres long, including a 15 metre tail. Another, the Brachiosaurus was the heaviest creature to walk the Earth. It weighed around 50 tonnes.

     The largest meat-eating animal ever to live on Earth was the Tyrannnosaurus, a name which means which means "Tyrant Lizard". It was 14 Metres long and weighed 7 tonnes. Pterosaur were the winged reptiles amongst many other different species.

   

Dinosaur

  Changes in the Earth's climate  and the consequent change in the vegetation may, just may have been the reason why the dinosaurs started to disappear. But the facts remain that although they have almost all departed this planet, they reigned on Earth for far longer than human beings have yet existed.

10 Tips for Successful Baking with Children

Whether you are painting cookies or decorating a birthday cake, you'll teach your child valuable skills in the kitchen. Most importantly, you'll build relationships and teach life lessons that will last forever. Here are some tips to make the experience with your child a success.

1. Keep it safe.      Teach your kids safety. Keep younger children away from a hot stove and sharp knives. Even very young children will want to put the flour in the mixing bowl or break an egg. Turn the mixer off and let them do it.

2. Keep it simple.      Choose simpler recipes and quicker recipes for young kids. Kids love to get their hands in the dough. Consider a cookie recipe, like snickerdoodles, where the cookies are hand-formed.

3. Make it feel good.   Overlook boo-boo's like egg shells in the dough. Praise often even if the product isn't perfect. When a mess happens, take it in stride and don't voice blame.

4. Build kids not cookies.     The kitchen makes an excellent classroom. Help the child read and interpret the directions--learning to follow written instructions is an important life skill.      Help the child understand the fractions found in most recipes. With older kids, use the opportunity to pass a little wisdom along—even if it slows down the project.

5. Take your time.Neither you nor your kids will enjoy the experience if you're fighting the clock. It takes twice as long to bake with kids--it's just worth it.

6. Keep it clean.     Teach good hygiene habits.      Teach kids to wash their hands often and to clean and disinfect the counters.      Help them use clean dish cloths and dish towels.

7. Teach ingredients.     Teach them the basics of ingredients. Explain how yeast works or baking soda. Show them the difference between granulated sugar, brown sugar, and confectioners' sugar.

8. Keep that food safe.     Teach them food safety principles. Make them aware of dangerous bacteria and how they thrive.      Teach them to keep hot foods hot (over 140 degrees) and cold foods cold (under 40 degrees).

Little Foot9. Consider mixes.         Have a few mixes on hand for cooking with kids. With a mix, there is less that can go wrong. Since it takes less time to bake, a mix may be more suitable for a child's attention span or may better fit an available block of time.

10. Clean it up.       Teach them to clean up as they go and afterwards. Let them know that the job is not done until the kitchen is clean.




DIDDILY DEE DOTS DREAMLAND FOR DINOSAURS
AND FRIENDS
SmileHE WinkHE LaughingHELittle Foot

 

PterodactylTell me who has got the original "Land Before Time" ?
I have and I will always have it.
Only the first one had the beauty, the pain, the love and sadness in it, that has been destroyed in the later films and TV Series.

The first film was the story of five young and very different Dinosaurs, who had to work together, no matter what their colour or tribe, in order to reach the Great Rift Valley where their families went for safety. Along the way they met many bad and terrifying obstacles but together they manage to get to their destination.
By taking away all of the horrible things in life, a child or baby dinosaur, we lead them into thinking the world we live in is all sweetness and light. It isn't, they will all have to meet the darkness in life as they grow Triceratopsinto adulthood. We can protect them, yes, but do not wrap them in so much cotton wool that they won't find the strength to deal with all the paths they have to tread.
 Love Diddily Dee Dot. x
It is now 2000 + and |I have at last got a copy of the very first Land Before Time with Little Foot, Ducky, etc. Brilliant.



DINO'S BURGER HOUSE

 

DINOSAUR DECOR

A balloon bouquet of smiling dinosaur faces tied to a mailbox, fence post or any other stationary object that's heavy enough to keep it from flying away makes a fun greeting for kids arriving at this party. Later, you can let each guest take one home. Inflate a bunch of quality large round latex balloons or, even better, purchase helium-filled balloons at a party store . Turn each balloon knotted- side up, then pull the string down along the back and tape it to the bottom of the inverted balloon. With acrylic paint, decorate the front of each balloon with two large eyes, circular nostrils and a U-shaped row of zigzag teeth.

And a little break for a few songs with Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. Enjoy




.Digging up fossils for this party  is a cinch. Just pick up a pack of toy dinosaurs and bury them in a giant bucket of sand. Before they go home, the kids can take turns using a plastic beach trowel or fork to see what creatures they unearth--Tyrannosaurus rex, Allosaurus or Diplodocus, perhaps? Have a dinosaur book on hand, too, so you can help the kids identify their finds.

Dinosaur Cupcakes

 
 

These easy-to-make cupcakes, decorated with plastic dinosaurs, work well for a prehistoric-themed

Welcome to the Dinosaur Park

Dinosaur Party

.Ingredients




    • White icing
    • Zip-top plastic bag
    • Shredded coconut
    • Green food coloring
    • Small plastic dinosaur (washed)
    Baked cupcakes
    Instructions
    1. Frost the cupcake. To make the "grass," place a handful of shredded coconut in the zip-top bag, add a few drops of food coloring, seal the bag and shake it. Cover the frosting with grass and top with a dinosaur.

    Tips:
    For a sandy look, use crushed graham crackers or molasses cookies instead of tinted coconut. Small rocks can be made out of chopped nuts.

    These are the Cacao Pods
    The same goes for the chocolate that people buy to deocorate cakes, that is just chocolate coloured candy and nothing else, hehe., These on your right are the Cacao Pods, while these on the left are the actual cacao beans, but they take a long, long time to grow first on the tree, then as flowers, then as bean pods and now as the actual beans. You and I can't be Cacao Beansbothered with all them things. I'll let you go to "Wiki" to read about them, and we'll just go straight to the chocolate.
    As we all know, by the way we are told if we eat to much chocolate we shall change into horrible little, or big goblins and this isn't just a special thing for children. My husband becomes very active and always ends up taking the dogs for a long walk. Hm m m, strange creatures men. 
    Here is a very strange recipe for you, you can use, rice krispies, corn flakes,
    and even spaghetti, but this has to be cooked first. eat them as a cake or eat them in small cake cases, but the spaghetti is better in a bowl

    You need 12oz margarine. 2 tblsp of Castor Sugar. 2tblsp of cocoa. 2 drops of vanilla essence and 100 grams spaghetti, broken into pieces about six cm. long, "about mouth size."

    chocolate pasta LinguineGet mum or dad to help you with cooking the spaghetti.
    Pour a litre water into a large saucepan, when boiling pour in the strands of spaghetti, add a pinch of salt but it's not necessary.
    Boil until it is just cooked, no more or it will go all gooey and stick together, and we don't want that.
    Put in strainer and hold under the hot tap till the pieces separate.
    Mix all the other ingredients together in the empty pan and mix well, then pour in the strained spaghetti and stir until it is coated in the sticky chocolate spread.
    Allow to cool, then eat till you puke, lol.

    When the Aztec had all the cacoa, they used it as we do money today.

    My Uncle George was a foreman at one of the big Cadbury's Chocolate Factories, here in Wales in Bangor-isy-Coed, I remember as a little one having loads of it for Chrisrmas and Easter. Huge slaps, with a flag in the middle, and he used to bring us "Edinburgh Rock" all different colours and a bit like chalk only more tasty. You can still buy it, but it is nothing like the one we had in the fifties, real scrummie. ( I think Diddily is very old, oh dear.)
    One of the thing's I used to love doing was making a very strange mixture. My three boys used to love them.
    A collection of different coated apples..Ingredients
    Take one green eating apple, (cos they are the hardest) for each person.
    A large pkt. of plain crisps, (two of my lads used to have cheese and onion,  A medium size bar of dark or milk chocolate.
    To Make
    Very carefully core the apple with corer and cut the apples in half, then with a teaspoon remove the flesh of the apple. DON'T BREAK THROUGH THE SKIN, you are using this for filling each half after, do the same to other half of the apple.
    Now for the fun bit.
    Chop the apple into a dish, crush the crisps in the packet till tiny bits. and then grate the chocolate bar into same bowl. Mix the three together, when fully mixed, put the mix back into the apple skin half, put on a tray and put in the fridge till nice and cold. And all
    you have left to do is eat it like you would an ordinary apple. Excellent and your getting heat from the chocolate; vitimin C from the apple and carbs from the crisps. Three of your five a day in one go.
    Right that's enough about chocolate. I shall look for more recipes. xxx

    Why not treat Mummy to a special breakfast !


     4oz butter

      4 oz sugar (granulated)
      2 eggs
      1/4 pint milk
      14 strawberries, fresh if possible
      6oz self raising flour
      1 teasp baking powder
    A teasp of good strawberry jam, per muffin

      

    • Pre heat oven to 350F, 180C, Gas Mark 4
    • Grease a muffin tin or fill with paper liners.
    • Cream the butter and sugar together in a large bowl.
    • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then add the milk.
    • Chop the strawberries up into small chunks,
    • then stir them carefully into the cake mix, try not to break or mush fruit.
    • Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl, then fold in.
    • Be careful not to mix to much.

    Now this is the secret bit. Fill your muffin cases only half full,then add the teaspoon of good strawberry jam, then add some more of the muffin mix till 2/3 full.

    Remember to leave room for the muffins to rise.

    • Bake until the muffins begin to turn brown, usually 25 - 30 mins.

    It is a good idea to use a tooth pick to prick the centre of my cake.
    If it comes out  clean, they are done.

    Remove the muffins from the tin and cool.

    TabalugaTABALUGA, THE LAST DRAGON ON EARTHTabaluga





    The little green Dragon Tabaluga is a cartoon character, who lives in the fictional place Greenland. He is around 7 dragon-years old (700 human years, as one year for a dragon is 100 for a human). He is the creation of Helme Heine, German artist and author, and his wife, Gisela von Radowitz.

    Stamp Tabaluga.jpg

    It is now out of print both in America and in Germany.

    The musical "Tabaluga & Lilli" celebrated its premiere on 24 September 1999 in the TheatrO CentrO, Oberhausen, and ran there until 30 June 2001. The little dragon amongst other things, managed to unite the High Society of German musical actors, with stars such as Andreas Bieber, Ross Antony, Paul Kribbe and Carolin Fortenbacher.

    The First studio album "Tabaluga or the journey to reason." (1983) was the step to success: there followed in the course of the years some Helme Heine books, four Studio albums, a resounding tour and many TV Cartoons, which are Broadcast in over 100 countries round the world. Over 100 kindergartens and child care groups carry the word "Tabaluga" in their names.

    Flying Bark Animation (previously known as Yoram Gross Films) has also produced an animated cartoon series of Tabaluga. In this series, Tabaluga is the last of the dragons and the crown-prince of Greenland, a magical place inhabited by talking animals of many different species. Tabaluga must defend his home from two rival kingdoms on either side of Greenland; a frigid arctic tundra, ruled by the evil snowman Arktos and a searing desert, ruled by an evil sand-spirit named Humsin.Tabaluga

    In Tabaluga tivi, the television show (90 min.), you will see the little green dragon, Tabaluga, his friend Happy (a snow hare) and his enemy Arktos, the wicked snowman. In the show, two teams play against each other in 5 competition rounds to win prizes for themselves, and to win the contents of a treasure chest, which they can donate to their school, a children's home, etc. The broadcast is transmitted by ZDF and also KI.KA. In Summer 2005 the show celebrated its 400th transmission. The show is made for ZDF in co-production with Munich Production Company MingaMedia and is made in the Bavaria-Studios in Unterföhring, near Munich.

    Soaring Dinosaurs 

    Chinese Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Life features about 200 exotic fossils of dinosaurs and other ancient animals and plants unearthed in China. The fossils offer clues to the evolution of the dinosaurs and shed new light on the rise of birds, mammals and flowering plants.

    Among the precious collection of fossils is the Jehol Biota unique to the province of Liaoning in northern China. During the early Cretaceous Period about 120 million years ago, the area was warm with lush vegetation around lakes and rivers. Prehistoric animals and plants flourished on this landscape until massive volcanic eruptions took place. Dinosaurs with feathers and ancients birds were among the victims of the prehistoric catastrophe. Without any warning and before they could take wing, the animals were buried alive in a layer of fine volcanic ash. Since the discovery of feathered dinosaurs in Liaoning in the early nineties, the exotic finds have commanded international attention and have become a focus of scientific research.

    This exhibition showcases latest discoveries and research by the Institute of Geology of the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region Museum, Chongqing Museum of Natural History and Lufeng Dinosaur Museum. Never before seen in Hong Kong, the fossils include the Jinfengopteryx elegans and Microraptor gui, precursors of modern birds, the 9-metre-tall Nuoerosaurus chaganensis found in the Gobi Desert, and the 9-metre-long Mammuthus sungari, one of the largest kinds of mammoths ever discovered.

    This exhibition is one of the major events for the Celebration of the Tenth Anniversary of the Establishment of the HKSAR.

    Clay Dinosaurs

    Clay is perfect for making dinosaur models. How about making a collection of your favourites?
    Top Tips:

    Not all clay needs to be fired, or baked in the oven; you can leave some types of clay to dry slowly on a windowsill. This is called air-drying or air-setting clay. You can buy it in art or craft shops.

    When you model your dinosaur, be careful not to make any parts of the body too skinny, as they may break when they dry out.
    Use 'slip' to join parts of your dinosaur together. To make slip, mix a little bit of clay with water to make a sludgy paste, then smooth it over any joins.

    Leave your dinosaur somewhere warm to dry for a couple of days.


    Why not visit a museum to get some dinosaur ideas?

    This is the http for these wonderful website

    http://www.show.me.uk/topicpage/Dinosaurs.html

    When the model has dried out you could paint it.

    Acrylic paint is best for painting on clay. If you use water-based paints and your dinosaur looks a little dusty or flaky when it's dry, a coat of varnish will seal on your colour.

    Hold each slice, flesh side up.
     Using a small knife, cut a criss-cross pattern into the flesh,
    down to the skin. Be careful not to pierce the skin.

     2. Place on a large plate, this is the dinosaur body. 

     3. Peel the banana and place it next to the mango to make a tail.

    4. Cut a thick slice of apple and use a knife to shape it into a dinosaur head.
