Dinosaur Crafts and Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers
    What do we know about dinosaurs? Dinosaurs were reptiles that lived a long time ago before books or pictures were around. Dinosaurs were cold-blooded, had backbones and scaly skin and laid eggs. Let children create dinosaurs through simple activities, dinosaur crafts, games, and printables for preschool and kindergarten. 

    Practically all children and probably most adults find the subject of dinosaurs fascinating and intriguing. Whether your child is a princess fanatic or a baseball lover, somehow they all gravitate towards dinosaurs. Our son has loved them since he first saw a dinosaur toy so we knew he would enjoy this set of dinosaur crafts and we were right!

    We've made a collection of dinosaur crafts your children are sure to enjoy. We have done all of these dinosaur crafts in our own home, many of them with our own son so that we can assure you they are child-friendly and easy to do.

    Dinosaur Dig Fossils

    What you'll need:

    Cardboard
    Sand
    Box
    Scissors
    Glue

    How to make your dinosaur fossil game:

    Step 1: - Print out fossil dinosaur template for free. If you have younger children that need a finished picture of the fossil to build off of, print two copies.

    Step 2: - Glue the template to a piece of light-weight cardboard.

    Step 3: - Cut the picture apart into pieces. The size and number of pieces will depend on your child's age or ability.

    In this fun game, your kids are paleontologists that go on a dinosaur dig and find fossils.  They have to put them together like a  puzzle to figure out what the dinosaur looked like. This was the inspiration for your kid's dinosaur fossil game. Simply print out fossil template to create your puzzle pieces and bury them in in a box of sand. This dinosaur fossil game makes a fantastic preschool dinosaur activity to do with your kids. You can also customize this dinosaur activity to meet the ability level of your child.

    Dinosaur Egg Craft

    No one knows for sure what color dinosaur eggs were, so this is a fun craft to let your children's imaginations take over! This dinosaur egg craft is a simple project that makes a great preschool craft. Grab a styrofoam egg, a few bottles of paint and let the fun begin!

    Large styrofoam egg (available in all craft stores)
    Serrated knife (adults only!)
    Paintbrush

    How to make your dinosaur egg craft:

    - Have an adult use the serrated knife to cut a little bit off the bottom of the styrofoam egg so it sits flat.
