Tot School – Dinosaur Pack


Aaron is 28 Months Old.

This week I introduced the dinosaur pack that I made for Aaron and Seth!!  They LOVED it!!  Aaron is IN LOVE with Dinosaur Train right now so this was right up his alley!  I have a feeling this one will be played with a lot!  I can’t really call it a tot pack because I put in activities for Seth as well…along with a few early elementary activities for down the road!

I got all of my printables from 1+1+1=1 and File Folder Fun.  I will probably continue to add to this pack since the boys love dinosaurs!!  In fact I may just have to make a dinosaur box because my folder is already full!!  :-)  But everything is laminated so it should last!

(I took all the pics on Monday when I introduced the pack and then we played with it all week!)

here is a view of the folder…told you it was full!!


Of course we are continuing to learn our colors so we had a lot of focus on the color matching game.  Aaron has learned the color green!! (we are still working on the other colors)


We did the name cards too.  Even though Seth is no longer a tot I went ahead and made him name cards too.  He was very happy about that!!  :-)  (I have even already made name cards for Alyssa for when she is old enough to do this pack!)

Both boys really liked the dinosaur puzzles!

We had a lot of fun matching heads and tails too!


We played with the sequencing dinosaurs…but Seth decided instead of saying largest to smallest we named them Daddy (the biggest), Mommy, Seth, Aaron and Alyssa!!


I printed off the color matching file folder games from File Folder Fun.  Aaron did pretty good at matching the colors.

I went ahead and printed and laminated the word cards for the color matching so as they learn to read this game can grow with them :-)


They had fun putting the numbering sequence cards in order.


I went ahead and printed off  and laminated the addition and subtraction file folder game from File Folder Fun so that they will have a fun math game as they grow up and learn addition and subtraction.


Here are some fun pictures I got of Aaron one night when we were getting ready for bed!

He is doing a good job at brushing his teeth!!


Laying on his pillow ready to go night night!  So sweet!


The other day I put my picture card in the computer to pull off pictures that I had taken and apparently Seth got hold of my camera again and was taking pictures!  Here are a couple that he got of Aaron!

This one cracks me up!!  His pose is so funny!!

  1. That Dinosaur pack you made looks great. I'll have to print some of those printables too. My boys love the Dinosaur Train show. Thanks for sharing!
