Preschool kids still have their wonderful imaginations fully intact, so it takes very little to send them off on an imaginary journey. Give them an idea or a prop and they’re off. These dinosaur masks will for sure turn them into fierce reptiles at your dinosaur party.
At 12 for $10, at current Amazon prices, you really can’t lose. The masks are foam and according to the reviews on Amazon, they’re big enough to really cover their faces.
NOTE: If you make a purchase through the link on this page, I make a commission from Amazon and that seems fair to me.
Turn any age appropriate game into a dinosaur themed game if they’re wearing these dino masks. Dino hopscotch where the leaf eaters show the meat eaters what-for. Have the kids figure out who is a carnivore and who is an herbivore – now there’s a challenge! Three legged dinosaur races- have them match up the carnivores and herbivores for the race. You get the idea.
If you want them to color their own dinosaur masks, you’ll find 5 of them at sparklebox.com. You will have to attach elastic so they can wear them and role-play, but you’ll have given them a craft activity to do- a pretty good trade-off.
All little kids are tuned in to dinosaurs, so I’m going to start looking for dinosaur party ideas for my readers. These dinosaur masks are a great start and give you an open-ended game that they can play and improvise until it plays itself out and you move them on to your next activity or incorporate in other games to continue your dino theme. Or if you opt for the color your own masks, you got a craft activity too.
