Dinosaur Week - Preschool

This week's preschool workboxes focus on a dinosaur theme.  I hope you enjoy them!

Dinosaur Color Match
Clip the matching clothespins onto each dinosaur to make his legs.
I used mini paper plates and ink pads for this quick project.  You can also use more clothespins and have your child make spikes on the dinosaur's back.

Counting Dinosaurs
Place the correct number of dinosaur stickers onto each sheet of construction paper.

Dinosaur Sorting
Sort the dinosaurs by type.

Find the Dinosaur Egg
This will be a simple game of hide and seek that we will probably play over and over.  I made the toilet paper roll dinosaurs from printouts here.  The egg is a ping pong ball.

Dinosaur Alphabet Match
Match each dinosaur to the correct egg (upper & lower case matching).  Printable available here.

Side Note:  I love The Mailbox Magazine! They had an incredible sale recently, so I stocked up on some of their books and theme kits.

The next 4 activities are from one of the theme kits I purchased (available here).  The kits come pre-laminated, which is wonderful!  

What starts with D?
 Number Matching
Size Sequencing
Find the Rhymes

 Shape Identification Game
This game is from The Mailbox Magazine Mix & Match Games Book, available here.

Some of our dinosaur books:


  1. I can't wait to do some of these Dino activites, my little guy just LOVES Dinos!

  2. I love the idea for the Mon-Friday books.

  3. Wow! Those preschool activities are really cool and awesome. I am sure that the kids will really enjoy this and will develop their creativity skills.
