Dinosaur Snack Ideas + Dinosaur Movie Night

Dinosaur Snack and Food IDeas for Kids

A fun way to incorporate a learning theme into your day is with fun snack and food ideas. My kids are not super picky, but if you want to guarantee that they are going to eat every last bite on their plate, then turn their food into something fun.

Here is a peek into what all we ate during our dinosaur theme.

Wafflesaurus’ 2 ways: I love taking a peek into our refrigerator or pantry and using items that we have on hand to create these fun meal ideas.

Our dinosaur cookie cutters came in handy many times throughout the unit, especially for our dinosaur quesadillas, dinosaur egg salad sandwiches, and dinosaur chips that we made from spinach tortillas.

We couldn’t forget to satisfy the sweet tooth and this pudding and crushed oreo dinosaur “dirt” hit the spot. Top it off with some fun dinosaur figurines and you have the perfect sweet treat.

And we let our imaginations take off with these fun snacks: Dinosaur toenails (Bugels), Dinosaur Eggs (grapes), Dinosaur bones (pretzels and marshmallows) and Dinosaur Spikes (watermelon).

All these fun snacks and food ideas made our dinosaur unit even more fun and many of these ideas made an appearance at our Dinosaur themed movie night. We started this “tradition” at the end of our Weather unit and plan to keep it going as a culminating activity for each of our themes.

We watched The Land Before Time and dined on some fun foods featured above. The kids had me take pictures of them in front of our display wearing their paleontologist hats. They love our movie nights and we cannot wait for future movie nights.
