Everything dinosaur: games, crafts, songs and activities


Do you know someone who’s mad about dinosaurs? Taking a child’s passion and using it as a springboard into lots of play is a great way for them to learn.

Here’s a fiesta of all things dinosaur: dinosaur games, dinosaur crafts, art and models, dinosaur activities and even dinosaur songs. There’s lots of fun to be had while you work on important skills including maths, language, fine and gross motor, imaginary play and creativity.
