What you need: Measuring tape (or just your steps), your dinosaur cards (included in the Dinosaur Crate), masking tape (optional)

What you do:

  1. Sort your dinosaur cards in order from shortest dinosaur to longest dinosaur.
  2. Using your measuring tape (or just your steps - a kid step is about 1 foot), measure out the length of the first dinosaur.
  3. Optional: you can have your kid write out the name and length of the dinosaur.
  4. Keep going to measure out the rest of the dinosaurs, getting longer and longer.
  5. Optional: race all the way back to the longest dinosaur's head (or tail, depending on where you start).

Questions to explore:

  • How many kid steps did it take to make the shortest dinosaur? The longest?
  • Were the dinosaurs bigger or smaller than you expected?
  • What are some other things you can think of that are as big as dinosaurs?
