Dinosaur Matching Print our templates. If possible print them out onto heavier quality paper. If not, glue the print outs onto poster board
and then cut out the dinosaur cards and color cards. This will give the cards some added stability and make digging for them easier so they don't rip. Fill a shallow pan (we used a roasting pan) with uncooked rice. Bury the dinosaur cards in the rice pan. Lay the color cards out so they are all visible. Have your child
dig through the rice and go on a dinosaur hunt! Once they find a dinosaur they need to match the dinosaur card with its color card Dinosaur Matching Template, poser board, scissors, glue, shallow pan, uncooked rice
