FF-Dinosaur Shapes





*UPDATE: The dinosaur shapes are now available for a small fee in my etsy shop: You can find the one page version here. I have also put a larger version with 2 dinosaurs to a page here.

In the spirit of school, I thought I'd do something for the little buddy this week as our freebie. He LOVES dinosaurs, and is really not interested in learning his shapes. Seriously, he should already know them. He knows his colors, numbers, and even all the letters and their sounds. But shapes? Other than circle he really couldn't care less. But, my sneakness thought if I combined it with dino's he might change his mind.

This one is a 2 page printable. The first page has the dinos on it and the second has the shapes. I did two sizes of shapes. Large ones (easier for little fingers to pick up) and small ones that are the exact size to fit inside the dinosaur. I won't lie, the little ones are tiny, probably only an inch or so which makes them harder to cut out. I laminated the shapes so they would last a little longer, and added magnets to the back of the big ones. You could also do velcro sticky dots. So far he seems interested . . . that's a good first sign, right?

So cute! My son loves dinosaurs right now too so this is perfect. Thanks!

Kori said...

I LOVE this! I just printed it up so I can go get it laminated. I'm wondering if you would ever consider making them larger - like one or two to a page. For the littlest ones. Maybe I'll hop over to your etsy site and see if you have already done that!
Thanks for sharing this great printable!

I will be sending others to your site. What a fun resource. Thank you for sharing a great printable.

This is so cute! I clicked the link to download and got an error message, it would be perfect to go with the book Dinosaur Shapes.

Lauralee said...

Cara-

Sorry about that. Google groups stopped hosting all documents, including many of my older printables. I'm working to get them re-uploaded and linked, but haven't done them all. This one should work now!

Julesmcg said...

I LOVE this!! My dino boy will have so much fun learning his shapes this way. Thank you. I am still having trouble downloading it, though. Any thoughts?

Lauralee said...

relinked it again. Should work now! Hopefully!

Spark*Amy said...

This is so cute, my daughter would love it. I am also getting an error message for the pages and to the etsy link. Found this on Pinterest.

Lauralee said...

After several failed attempts, obviously, (sorry ladies) of trying change the link (blogger wouldn't seem to save it or something). I've finally just added a new link to the scribd version. This had better work . . . or else! Enjoy!

Spark*Amy said...

Yes! It worked for me! I love it!

VICKI IN AZ said...

I just love these!! Thank you for re linking them. I have come back several times to find them and just can't wait to make them for my grandson. Thank you for all of your sharing.

Julesmcg said...

I works! Thank you so much for all the effort to get it upload-able! I cannot wait to pull it out for the dino-fan in our house!!

Ryan & Jamie said...

I was able to access the print-out a few days ago but held off until the weekend... now I can't seem to access it at all. Is there any way you could send it to me, or fix it? It says it's not "public" anymore. jturner87@gmail.com

Kris said...

This is adorable, but I can't seem to get it to print either. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Lauralee said...

Kris, Ryan & Jamie--yes I've made the document private because I'm going to put it in my etsy shop. Currently I have a larger version there as well. If you email me though I will send you the one page version until I get it put up in my shop!

Alicia Brown said...

Hi! I downloaded this for my daughter to play with a long time ago and I recently turned it into a quiet book page! I mentioned you in my post about it. I would love to know what you think!
