Dinosuar Coloring Pages

Children’s drawings show what they’re aware of, according to Dr. Melodie de Jager. Therefore, if your child has reached the stage of drawing and coloring dinosaurs, you can be sure he/ she is aware of them. (Your child won’t draw anything he/ she isn’t consciously aware of.)

If dinosaurs have begun appearing in your child’s work, providing him/ her with pencils and paper as well as dinosaur coloring pages/ games will further encourage this interest. If you’re not sure how to use their love of dinosaurs to further enhance their development, here are some more ideas to implement.


Vocabulary Exercises

According to Concordia University, making pictures is an excellent way to teach students vocabulary. When kids are younger, drawing dinosaurs helps them create a mental picture of the vocabulary they’re learning.

While we usually speak of dinosaurs in general terms, there are many types of dinosaurs (T-Rex, stegosaurus, velociraptor, etc.) Being able to draw and color each one helps a child to understand the vocabulary he/ she is learning. This type of dinosaur coloring games makes learning fun and memorable.


Learning Science

In the series, “The Secrets of Drawing” British art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon explains how the first scientists, like Leonardo Da Vinci, were also the best artists. In light of this, dinosaur coloring pages can be a science teacher’s best friend.

Younger kids can learn about dinosaurs in their science classes and then color pictures of dinosaurs as part of the lessons. Children who are older can use the outline of dinosaurs on their dinosaur coloring pages to fill in more detailed anatomy of the animals they’re studying. They can add bones, muscles, and other details to gain a more accurate picture of these ancient animals.


Just For Fun

Of course, it’s also okay if your child likes dinosaur coloring games and pages just because they like them. Children actually learn through play, according to artist Thomas Kinkade in his book “Simpler Times.” For them, play is their work, and they take it seriously.

Encouraging children to make dinosaur coloring games/ pages may actually serve them beyond the fun these activities provide in the moment. Drawing and coloring help build fine motor skills: They also enhance brain development. In other words, drawing and coloring is a perfectly good way to spend an afternoon.
