The Good Paleontologist

In going to see Disney-Pixar's Inside Out, the world caught a preview of Disney-Pixar's The Good Dinosaur.

The Good Dinosaur asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.

While the movie is not set to be released to theaters until Thanksgiving 2015, here are some fun activities to get your little paleontologist discovering the world of dinosaurs.

Don't forget that your little paleontologist(s) will work up a hunger after all their dino-activities. Serve up some dino shaped sandwiches using a dinosaur sandwich cutter. You can actually use a cookie cutter or you can buy a sandwich cutter from a few different locations. Don't forget to compost those crusts if no one is going to eat 'em! And then, back to the dino-fun!!

But why do the kids get to have all of the fun?! You can make yourself a few crafty dinosaur decor items. You are going to be the movie taker and craft maker, why not have some fun as dino fun as well!
