Who doesn’t love all things dinosaurs? Before I share some fun dinosaur shows for kids and dinosaur movies on Netflix for movie night, I have to ask if you’ve tried making dinosaur fossils with your kids?
Oh boy, are they in for a treat!
This is such a fun and easy craft especially if you have a bunch of dinosaur toys lying around the house.
(If you don’t, don’t worry. These are a great deal for 72 dinosaurs.)

What are some Dinosaur Shows and Movies, on Netflix, for Kids?
* Netflix updates the dinosaur movies and dinosaur shows streamed ever so often. At times they may even remove one of the titles mentioned below. I do try my best to update this list but there are times when an update is made and the title gets replaced a day or two later. Sincere apologies if this is the case. If this happens, rest assured, Amazon Prime has some great dinosaur shows for kids too.
The Magic School Bus and The Busasaurus
Ms. Frizzle takes the class on a dinosaur dig, courtesy of her old school chum, a paleontologist, and travels 67 million years back in time!
A preschool-aged T-Rex and his adoptive family go for adventures on the Dinosaur Train and learn fascinating new facts about incredible creatures.
Would you believe we still have these InterAction figures from Dinosaur Train and yes, they still work!
Barney and friends
Join this lovable purple dinosaur and his friends (Baby Bop, Riff, DJ and the kids) as he dances his way into your living room with memorable songs and fun lessons. Barney continues to be one of the best dinosaur shows for toddlers and preschoolers. My oldest grew up on Barney and I can sing along to all the songs, in my sleep!!
Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous
Six teens invited to attend a state-of-the-art adventure camp on Isla Nublar must band together to survive when the dinosaurs break out of captivity.
Four prehistoric friends go on an array of adventures while trying to unravel a mystery about a big, fierce creature. Based on Jonny Duddle’s book.
Older kids may enjoy these seasons and yes, this is a calmer version of our good ol’ Jurassic Park.
Half dinosaur, half construction truck, full-on fun! Watch giant Ty Rux, his little buddy Revvit and the crew come face-to-face with evil D-Structs.
Half dinosaur counts, right?

An enterprising cupcake and his cheerful dinosaur brother take on jobs of all sorts as they work to help friends and strangers in their eccentric city.
While we’re talking about dinosaur movies, have you watched The Good Dinosaur?
What did you think about it?
Check out my thoughts on the movie and grab some free printable resources your child can enjoy.
If you have older kids, I’m sure Jurassic Park remains a big favorite.
Who can forget that scene when they’re in the jeep and they notice the water in the glass shaking. Squeal!
That always gives me shivers!!
