INTERESTING DINOSAUR FACTS

I don’t think dinosaurs will ever go out of style. There always seems to be a new Jurassic Park movie coming out every few years to keep the craze going.
Here are some interesting dinosaur facts to share with your bingo players:
- Velociraptor means speedy thief.
- The T-Rex bite is supposedly more than twice as powerful as a lion’s bite.
- There have been dinosaur skulls found that are as long as a car.
- Dinosaur remains have been found on all continents.
- The first Stegosaurus skeleton was found in Colorado.
- Meat-eating dinosaurs are known as theropods.
- The word theropods mean beast-footed because they had sharp, hooked claws on their toes like a beast!
- The long tails of dinosaurs helped them keep their balance when they were running.
- Dinosaur is a Greek word that means terrible lizard.
- Explorer Roy Chapman Andrews found the first dinosaur nest in 1923 in the Mongolia Gobi Desert.
- There have been dinosaur eggs found that are as big as a basketball.
- Plant eating dinosaurs had eyes that faced out to each side so they could watch for danger while they were eating.
DINOSAUR THEMED PARTY IDEAS
If you are having a dinosaur themed party you may need some more fun ideas. I have several boys at my house and they all loved dinos when they were younger!
- Have a fossil dig during the party. Fill up a small baby pool with sand and bury some “fossils” in the sand. Let the kids do their own dig!
- Make some dinosaur sugar cookies using these dinosaur cookie cutters. Let the kids decorate their own cookies for even more fun.
- Order some tiny plastic dinosaurs and then make some dinosaur ice cubes. Just place a plastic dinosaur into each ice cube tray slot. Add water and freeze. Put these into the cups and kids will be so excited when their ice melts!
- You can decorate for the party using a lot of hunting type decor. Greenery and camo type items work great for the prehistoric time period.
- It is fun to use a dinosaur footprint template to cut out dinosaur steps that lead up to the front door for the party.
