With the release of Disney-Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur on Blu-Ray/DVD and Digital HD last week, I figured it’d be the perfect time to share a few fun dinosaur activities and crafts! Starting with the fun DIY Good Dinosaur shirts I made the boys for our trip to Walt Disney World last week! You don’t have to be headed to Disney Parks to enjoy a fun new Disney shirt!
All kids (and some adults) can enjoy these free printable Good Dinosaur coloring pages.
And don’t forget to pick up The Good Dinosaur on Blu-Ray and Digital HD so that you can enjoy watching the movie at home. My boys have been waiting to watch the movie again for months! The Blu-Ray and Digital HD versions also come with quite a few fun bonus features.
The Good Dinosaur Digital HD and Blu-ray Combo Pack Bonus Features
- THEATRICAL SHORT – Sanjay’s Super Team – Sanjay loves the world of cartoons and comics, while his father tries to draw him into his Hindu traditions. Reluctance quickly turns into awe-inspiring adventure as the boy embarks on an amazing journey, returning with a new perspective they can both embrace.
