Dinosaur Play Dough Activities and Memory Verse

Dinosaur play dough kits 😍 We have been obsessed with dinosaurs over here 🦕🦖 so we had to make a activity kit and have been having so much fun! The verse I chose to include with this set is Genesis 1:31: Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good!

FREE Dinosaur Play Dough Mats for toddlers and preschoolers

I wish there were more resources that talked about how God made dinosaurs when he made people (not millions of years ago!). Dinosaurs lived with people before going extinct and that's really neat! I know there are varying views on this, obviously, but I believe in a literal interruption of Genesis 1. I recommend checking out the website Answers in Genesis and reading what they have to say about dinosaurs, including this quote at the beginning of their page: "Dinosaurs were created by God on Day 6 of creation, approximately 6,000 years ago, and were originally vegetarian. During the global Flood, many were buried and fossilized but two of each kind survived on Noah’s Ark. They eventually died out, due to human activity, climate changes, or other factors."

Dinosaur Play Dough Activity Kit (and more)

Now, back to playing with dinosaurs ;) 

This dinosaur printable activity set includes a play dough mat, homemade board game (just add a dice to play), tracing / coloring sheets, and a verse card. You will notice the verse is everywhere! There is a separate verse card (with 4 dinosaurs because I couldn't decide on my favorite), it is included on the play dough mat, on the game board, and on the coloring/tracing sheets.

Even though I assume most of the kids playing with this set can't read, these visuals are here for you, the mama/care giver, so that you can be reminded to read it whenever you do an activity. Constantly hearing scripture will help kids memorize naturally and can bring about great discussion too!

Creation Dinosaur Books

They can be hard to find, so I'd love some more recommendations, but here's some creationist books about dinosaurs that we have (or want to get, we don't own Indescribable yet). *amazon affiliate links

And just for fun, chalk is a wordless book that my kids love because they can make up the story. If you don't own any wordless books yet, I definitely recommend checking them out!


Dinosaur Songs

Just for fun, we love this song by Laurie Berkner, We are the Dinosaurs!

And here's a song with motions to help your kids learn Genesis 1:31.

What other dinosaur activities do your kids love? 

I'd love to hear about them so please share in the comments. We are always looking for more dinosaur fun! I hope these printables and activity ideas are able to provide your kids with hours of entertainment as well.
