Dinosaur Preschool Theme Activities
Dinosaur Hide and Seek – Letter and Number Recognition Battleship Game
This is one of our new favorite games, and it is excellent for teaching number and letter recognition. Use the printables to create a simple file folder game. Then add dinosaurs to play. We used these adorable Dinosaur Counters in rainbow colors.

Dinosaur Footprint Counting with Playdough
My kids are obsessed with this activity! Playdough is always fun, but getting to make dinosaur tracks was just awesome. Some of the kids figured out how to count by 2s and 4s to get to their number. Others just did one foot print at a time. Either way, they were learning, counting, and loving it.
Dinosaur Counting Pretend Play
The kids love these colorful dinosaur counters, and they were perfect for pretend play in our prehistoric counting scene.
Dinosaur Paper Bag Puppet Craft
I love a fun preschool craft, and these paper bag dinosaur puppets are so much fun. Color them how you like, and talk like a dinosaur, read sight words like a dinosaur or even eat a dinosaur’s favorite letters.
Dinosaur Sight Word Stomp Activity
Stomp like a dinosaur, and get a little bit of sight words practice in at the same time. I love this fun activity for beginning readers.
Dinosaur Alphabet Match & Clip
This simple letter matching activity is way more fun with dinosaurs. Clipping and unclipping the clothespins is also excellent for hand strength and fine motor practice.
Dinosaur Colors Roll & Cover
For this activity we are working on colors. You can cover the dinosaurs with a similar colored dinosaur or any other marker you’d like. I like to use my Transparent Spinners, because they are so versatile and go with many different activities.
Dinosaur Counting Puzzles
These counting puzzles are simple and fun. They store easily in a zip lock back for and easy center idea.
Dinosaur Egg Counting with Playdough
The kids love making their own dinosaur eggs for this activity. To make it even more fun, you could hide mini dinosaur toys, buttons or erasers inside your playdough eggs.
Dinosaur Scales Count and Clip
Count the scales on the dinosaur for this fun math activity. Clip a clothespin on the correct number.
Dinosaur Number Cards
I love these dinosaur number cards, because we use them a couple of different ways. You can trace the letters with a dry erase marker, make the number with playdough or even count the correct number of dinosaurs to match.
Dinosaur Scales Counting
This fine motor activity is also fun for patterns practice. The children can create their own color patterns as they count scales onto the dinosaurs back.
