Dinosaur Games

Dinosaur games are so much fun and relative to kids. Why? Everyone with kids knows the draw of dinosaurs. It’s like a bee to a flower, a bear to honey, a picnic basket to a bear…woah, I really aged myself there.

There are so many educational & just-plain-fun dinosaur games out there. Where do you even start? Below you’re going to find a list of dinosaur games organized by age.

Important note: Some of these games may contain art or information that is outdated. I suggest visiting Prehistoric Wildlife for more updated information.
