Dinosaur Dramatic Play + Word Wall (Printable)

Posted on 04/28/20 by Amanda in Early Childhood

Dramatic play doesn't have to mean a fully decorated area in your home - it's often not feasible!

Instead, provide opportunities for imaginative play by adding costumes (homemade and paper-based are great), word walls, and items that wouldn't typically be used in regular play.

For a fun dinosaur invitation, here are a few ideas for enhancements to your play area that you may already have or can create together:

Dinosaur Word Wall (Free Printable, TMS)

Use word walls to enhance your living space. Choose a new one to learn about each day and practice letter identification and sounds. Connecting visual pictures and words is a start for early reading, too.

Dinosaur Puzzle (Free Printable, TMS)

Puzzles are the best. Create your own by cutting the pieces from our free printable or use whatever photo you like. When possible, use cardstock or laminate before cutting to make this a puzzle that outlasts a few completions.

DIY Dinosaur Hats (Paper and Glue)

Use construction paper and tape to create fun hats that could be a T-rex, Stegosaurus, or Triceratops!
