Preschool Dinosaur Songs & Preschool Dinosaur Action Rhymes

Our favorite preschool songs have great actions, fun rhymes, and tie into our themes!  These dinosaur songs are perfect for singing with one or two kids or for a big group's circle or singing time!  Action rhymes for kids get your preschoolers moving, exercising, and rhyming all at the same time!

Anything that combines large muscle or gross motor exercise with literacy improves memory and cognition. Try these fun preschool dinosaur songs out and let me know how your kids like them!

#1: Are You Eating, Dinosaur?

by: Carla at Preschool Powol Packets
Tune: Frere Jacque/Are You Sleeping

Are you eating? Are you eating?
(pretend to eat)
Dinosaur? Dinosaur?
I can hear you stomp and I can hear you tromp and
(stomp and tromp in a circle)
Now let's ROAR!  Now let's ROAR!
(put hands to mouth and roar)

#2: Dino Toes

by: Carla at Preschool Powol Packets
Tune: Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes

Dino head, Dino toes, dino toes, dino toes,
(point to head and toes)
Dino head, dino toes,
(point to head and toes)
Dino tail and dino nose!
(wiggle "tail" and point at nose)

#3: 10 Little Dinosaurs

by: Carla at Preschool Powol Packets
Tune: Michael Finnegan (or 10 Little Indians)

1 little, 2 little, 3 little dinosaurs,
4 little, 5 little, 6 little dinosaurs,
7 little, 8 little, 9 little dinosaurs,
10 dinosaurs stomping!

10 little, 9 little, 8 little dinosaurs,
7 little, 6 little, 5 little dinosaurs,
4 little, 3 little, 2 little dinosaurs,
1 dinosaur sleeping!

As the song progresses, put up a finger for each dinosaur.
Stomp and sleep when you sing those lines!
Try switching other words (like "eating," "running," "jumping," etc.) out for "stomping" and "sleeping!"

Do you have a dinosaur preschool theme or dinosaur camp coming up?
