Ideas for Easy Preschool Paper Stegosaurus Craft
We list down all the awesome ideas on how to maximize the use of this free printable stegosaurus craft template.
1. Cool Stegosaurus Facts
Children ten to have lots of questions about dinosaurs because they love to memorize many different facts.
Did you know that the name Stegosaurus comes from the Greek words “stegos” meaning roof and “sauros” meaning lizard?
It belonged to a group of dinosaurs known as Stegosauria.
Did you know that stegosaurus has 17 bony plates on its back and a spiked tail called thagomizer?
The plates on its back and spiked tail were used to keep the predators off their back.
In spite of its huge size, did you know that the size of a stegosaurus’ brain was only around the size of a dog’s?
If you have a child who can’t get enough of dinosaurs, use this cute printable stegosaurus craft and tell them these awesome facts!
2. Read Dinosaur Stories
Enjoying a dinosaur book with your child is a wonderful way to share ideas and knowledge together.
Children who read at an early age help them to learn to speak, interact and bond with their parents.
If you’re trying to look for cool dinosaur books for your kids to read, here are some of my child’s favorite books.
- Stegosaurus: The Friendliest Dinosaur (Dinosaur Books)
- Little Explorers: Dinosaurs
- Stegosaurus (Little Paleontologist)
3. Learning Numbers for Kids
We are having a great time making this easy cut and paste stegosaurus craft!
That’s why we decided to include it in our preschool lesson plans.
Once your child is done coloring and designing their own printable stegosaurus craft template, use a black marker to write numbers on each stegosaurus’ plates.
Say the number while pointing to the corresponding numeral until your little learner can recognize the numbers.
Use this method and practice every day but make sure to do it in a fun way.
Eventually, you will notice that your child can recite numbers on their own.
