These dinosaur mats are so much fun. They can be used in many different ways. I know that I can think of several and I’m going to show you a few of those ideas.

Each of the mats has a shape name and the dinosaur forming that shape. It is simple and easy to see. I laminate the mats or put them in sheet protectors to help the pages last longer. I love sheet protectors because I can store them in a binder with all my other shape printables.

How to Use these mats

These mats are not always going to be used just one way. I know this because not all kids learn the same way. I know my girls did not.

One of the first ways you can use this printable is as a tracing activity. You can connect all the dinosaurs together to make a shape.
