Recently we went into San Francisco to visit the amazing dinosaur exhibit at the California Academy of Sciences. It was such a hit! The kids loved digging for fossils and playing games to learn about Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Now that I’ve gotten the kids excited about dinosaurs, I thought it would be fun to try out some simple dino-themed activities at home! Today I’m sharing 5 easy dinosaur themed activities for toddlers and preschoolers.
If you like these, make sure to check out our Summer Camp with a whole week dedicated to dinosaurs and volcanoes!
