Once Upon a Book ~ All Aboard the Dinotrain


Summary: Follow along as the dinosaurs experience a roller coaster of a train ride!

Bible Verse 

God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:25

Dino Color Matching

The little boys matched up the Dinosaur Train color cards.

Then we used just the color cards and matched up our dinosaurs with the appropriate color.

Dino Sorting

The little boys used the dinosaur size cards to sort dinosaurs by size.


Dino ABCs

The big boys used our ABC file folder game to match the Dinosaur Train ABC cards. I printed two copies of the same cards so that the little boys used the same cards to play mini games of memory. (You could also print the Dinosaur A to Z chart from the PBS Kids Dinosaur Train parent’s site and make them into matching cards.)IMG_2447

Dino Song

We used the "Dinosaurs A to "Z lesson plans to learn and sing {the little boys tried to sing} along to the Dinosaur Train “Dinosaurs A to Z” song many, many times.

Dino Games

The big boys LOVED playing games from the PBS Kids Dinosaur Train Website and the little boys enjoyed watching and helping!


Dino Snack

Dinosaur Chicken Nuggets!!! For a fun twist, the kids had to identify each of their dinosaurs!

Dino Craft

For a fun craft, you can make dinosaurs from the book, Crafts for Kids Who Are Wild About Dinosaurs.
