Stegosaurus Counting Game!

Our 2nd activity during our Dinosaur Preschool theme this week was this fun counting game!
LB(3) and I recently read a book about Stegosauruses. He loved looking at the pictures and saying the word "Stegosaurus" over and over. So this simple little game was a big hit! It is also such a fun way to practice counting--because there's no better way to learn than with a fun and educational game for kids!




Supplies:

Prep Work:
  • Draw a simple dinosaur shape on the blue foam and cut it out. It doesn't have to be perfect, just make sure it has a big back to put all the spikes on. :)
  • Cut out 6 triangles from the brown foam.
  • Draw on an eye and a smile with a black marker.



How to Play!

  • Roll the dice and place that number of spikes on the stegosaurus's back! Easy peasy mac & cheesy. And such a great way for little ones to practice numbers and counting!


This is a fun way to practice counting out objects, which is a good skill to prepare toddlers and preschool kids for math readiness.
