Playdough Dinosaur Fossils: Explore print making, matching, and types of dinosaurs with this simple playdough activity! This is even a great activity for some dramatic dinosaur play!
When it comes to favorite toys in our house right now there are three that are battling each other for the first place: Dinosaurs, Legos/Duplos, and Playdough…
So, getting two of the favorites into one simple hands on activity? Major win! This activity kept my little man entertained long enough for me to get the dining room cleaned up and vacuumed from our Dino Dirt activity [which was brilliantly fun and horribly messy]…
Items Needed for Playdough Dinosaur Fossils:
- Plastic Dinosaurs
- Play Dough (our favorite is our simple homemade playdough)
- Tray for easy clean-up
That’s all there is to it! Simple Fun!
We played match the footprints to the dinosaurs…
Practiced making imprints.
The stegosaurus was by far the favorite…
Meatball found his armor so fascinating he had to make some himself. Which led to exploration into which dinosaurs had body armor and which ones didn’t and how the ones that did not have any armor protected themselves.
It’s not very innovative, but I can promise you it is fascinating and fun!
