Games and Activities:

1.  Download a Dinosaur:   Dino's to make from paper.

2.  All about Dinos:   Check out their Print-Outs, Dino's to Color and word games.

3.  Fossil Dig:
     Need dog bone treats.  Bury these in a sand box or other designated area.  Have the kids dig for dino bones.
OR use real bones.  Save bones and boil them for 1/2 to 1 hour to get all the meat off.  After boiling, bake them for another hour or so.  Cool and spray with primer and white paint.

4.  Dinosaur Hunt:
     Draw a large dinosaur, cut into several pieces (like a puzzle).  Hide these pieces around and let the kids find them.  Have them restructure the dino.

5.  Hatch the Dino Egg:
     Need balloons for each team, one per child.  Mini dinosaur toys or stickers.  Place one in each balloon before blowing up and tying off.
     Play:  Have each team line up.  The first in line gets to hatch their "dino egg" by sitting on the balloon.  They need to try to break the balloon before the next one in line gets a chance.  When they break their "egg" they keep the prize.  First team finished wins.

6.  Bone Drop
     Need doggy bone treats.  Jar or container.
Play:  Have the kids drop the bones into the container while standing straight.  Give them 5-10 bones each.  The one with the most in wins.

7.  Dinosaur Charades
     Put dino names on paper slips and have the kids pick them out of a basket.  The kids can act out their dinosaur and let the others guess who they are.

Purchase small plastic dinosaurs and make homemade playdough.  Cover the dino's with the playdough so they are in an "egg."  Bake.  Let the kids break them apart with supervision.

12.  Triceratops Toss:  Draw the front face of a Triceratops on a large poster board.  Where the horns should be put in 3 dowels.  Let the kids toss embroidery hoops onto the horns.

13.  Make "dino feet" out of empty cereal boxes.  Lay them flat and cut an X into the top of each so the boys can put their feet in them like shoes. Covered each box with colored funny foam cut into the shape of dino footprints. The boys put their feet into the boxes like a huge pair of shoes.  Give them each a big spoon with a dino egg on it. They have to walk/stomp their way across the room and dump the egg into the nest.
