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.)

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.
