Camouflaged Dinosaurs in Autumn Leaves

After making a collection of Autumn leaves we had fun hiding toy dinosaurs and talking about how they were camouflaged in the leaves. Toddlers and preschoolers will love this simple hands on learning activity.

Camouflaged Dinosaur Activity


We filled a tray with Autumn leaves and I started to hide Harry's dinosaurs amongst them.  He asked if he could help hide them and we talked about which dinosaurs we though would be the hardest to see.  I introduced harry to the work 'camouflaged'.

As Harrys searched through the leaves hunting for the dinosaurs he loved using his new word 'camouflaged' and kept telling me whether he thought each dinosaur was well camouflaged or not.

Harry found all the dinosaurs (making lots of mess as always) and we sorted the dinosaurs onto leaves according to colour.

We decided that the yellow dinosaurs on the yellow leaves were camouflaged the best.
