How much do children love dinosaurs!? I don’t know about your children, but I think my children engage in pretend play with their toy dinosaurs on a daily basis.

Since dinosaurs are such a great way to get children learning about science and history at an early age, I am excited to share this simple art and science exploration activity that teaches children all about dinosaur tracks, dinosaur footprints (there is a difference) and the best part is the activity is part of a series combining books with learning activities for kids!

The blog, Rainy Day Mum is hosting a Summer books and activities series called Storybook Summer. I am thrilled to be one of the contributing bloggers in the Land Before Time series that is all about dinosaurs.

Check out this simple way to make your own DIY Dinosaur Track Sponges for a painting activity that the kids can do to learn and explore all about dinosaur tracks. I share a great book we read that teaches children all about dinosaurs and dinosaur tracks!


If your children love dinosaurs, try out this easy way to make your own dinosaur footprint sponges for a painting activity exploring dinosaur tracks. This activity for kids is part of the Story Book Summer series combining books and activities over at Rainy Day Mum.

After viewing how we learned about dinosaur tracks with this painting activity, stop back and explore the other art activities for kids I have shared!
