I absolutely love a good dinosaur activity and/or craft!
My LO can tell you all of the names of each of the dinosaurs.
It’s one of those toys my girls just love and when we incorporate a learning activity to go along with our dinosaur toys, it’s a win!
This particular Dinosaur theme activity works on counting, matching and number recognition.
I was inspired by the parking cars activity where you match the cars number to the correct numbered parking lot.
We have a plethora of dinosaur toys and so I put two and two together and knew that they would work great in a fun number matching activity!
Now, you can absolutely just count them and line them up in a row.
This is also a great activity to learn about counting and numbers and I encourage it.
I just wanted to add the extra cool dino background and matching activity to go along with it. 🙂
This simple Dinosaur activity game can work on not only learning about counting and numbers.
But, you can theme it for a fun name dinosaurs activity or small dinosaurs compared to big dinosaurs for learning about big to small!
These are just some extra bonus ideas you can add a bit of early learning with to your dinosaur toys! 🙂
I will be sharing how I put this simple and very easy Dinosaur preschool activities ideas together and how easy it was to put together so you are able to too! 🙂

Dinosaur activities for preschoolers
Here are the steps I took to put this simple Preschool dinosaur unit activity together for my preschooler:
On a white poster board, draw lines all around it sort of like cubbies and then write out a number within each.
Tip: If your preschooler is learning numbers 1-10, write those in. If your preschooler is learning numbers 1-20, write those numbers in for a more advanced approach.
Tip: Make sure you have the right amount of dinosaurs as well. 🙂
Then, write those same numbers on dot stickers.
Remove the numbered dot stickers and place them on your dinosaur toys.
Then, match the numbered dinosaurs to their correct numbered cubby on the poster board.
Super easy and very fun Preschool dinosaur activity for learning about counting, matching and numbers!
