Dinosaurs have always been a favorite at our house. It is a themed we have used over and over! I love having those dinosaur activities to do.
Today I have a fun Dinosaur Shape Mats for kids. This was a request and I just fell in love with the idea! I mean who does not love having dinosaurs as a learning activity!
This is a part of the 5 Days of Dinosaur Printables.
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.
A second way you can use this printable is with playdough. They can connect the dinosaurs and make the shape using the playdough.
A third way you can use this printable is with dinosaur counters and place a dinosaur on each of the dinosaurs around the shape. This makes a great hands-on activity.
A few more ideas are: using dot markers to dot the dinosaurs and cut the shapes out. There are so many ways to use these!
