Explore the Outdoors with a Dinosaur Train Giveaway!

April is a great month! It is World Habitat Awareness Month and on April 22nd is Earth Day.

It’s the month to get outside and explore Mother Nature. Dinosaur Train wants to join in the fun and teach the little ones why this is so important.


Join the Dinosaur Train Nature Tracker’s Club!

It’s a FREE community of young children, their families and educators committed to learning about nature and doing good things for their environment.   Nature Trackers enjoy exploring and having adventures, respecting their environment, collecting things, tracking and observing plants and animals, and challenging themselves to get outside and make discoveries every day.

You can even take the Dinosaur Train Geocaching Challenge!  I bet my boys would love that!

And PBSParents.org/outdoors has a ton of great outdoor activities planned for the month!


When you’re tired from all your outside fun, come indoors for some more Dinosaur Train fun.

Check out the brand new online game, Backyard Theropods ~ Learn all about today’s dinosaurs – birds!  Join Dr. Scott and help place interesting birds in their appropriate habitat. Use a bird caller to attract the bird, listen to the clue and then select where you think it lives. You will learn what different birds sound like, look like, what they are called, where they are likely to live, and about the ancestral connection between birds and dinosaurs. Once you learn a little more about birds you can get out in nature and look for birds in your own backyard!

Watch Dinosaur Train! PBS KIDS kicks off Earth Month with three weeks of “Explore the Outdoors” themed on-air programming, and will air “Dancing with Dinosaurs” the week April 8 – 12. Encore presentations of some of the most musical episodes of Dinosaur Train make for a week of dance-tastic adventures. Buddy, Shiny, Tiny and Don explore ponds, gardens, oceans and more. They sing and dance as they encourage kids to get outside, get into nature and make their own discoveries.  These episodes are:

  • That’s Not a Dinosaur/Tiny’s Garden
  • Remember the Alamosaurus/Sunrise, Sunset
  • Elmer Elasmosaurus/Dinosaur Block Party
  • Junior Conductor Jamboree/Troodon Train Day
  • Buddy Explores the Tyrannosaurs/Rainy Day Fight


And finally cuddle up and read Buddy and The Nature Trackers from Readers Digest Children’s Books ~ More than 45 flaps to lift and a learning activity on each spread combine to make this book both entertaining and educational!  The Nature Trackers are always on the lookout for interesting things to discover all around them. Kids will enjoy the adventures of Buddy, Tiny, Shiny and Don as they check out a cave filled with colorful gems, watch baby dinosaurs hatch from eggs, and more. The activities throughout reinforce early learning concepts like colors, action words, counting, matching, and opposites.

Check out ALL the Dinosaur Train Books!
