Before I do a full recap of our Dinosaurs theme, I wanted to share some FREE Silhouette Studio files and printables for the Silhouette Cameo!

A note — you do not need to have a Silhouette to use the Silhouette Studio software, if you desire! You can download the free version and print to a regular printer.

Another note — if you are using the Silhouette Cameo to cut, I definitely recommend you have a blade you use just for cardstock. I tend to have mine set at 4 and I just use the recommended cut speed (3) and thickness (33), turning the latter up a few when cutting particularly thick cardstock.


(1) Dino Silhouette Watercolors

FREE Tot School Dinosaur Outlines for Silhouette Cameo, PDF, Word, Publisher

This is a single 12 x 12 file that includes four dinosaur outlines (3 animals and one set of footprints)

Cut with Silhouette on 12 x 12 cardstock. Then, use as desired. (For E, I gave him watercolors).

In case anyone wants to print these on a standard printer, here are PDF and Word files in a friendlier 8.5 x 11 size:


(2) Make-a-Dino with Shapes

FREE Tot School Make a Dino Activity for Silhouette Cameo (Studio), plus PDF, Word & Publisher!

This idea absolutely comes from Little Family Fun’s build a dinosaur activity — thank you!

There are two parts, with the second part being optional.
1. Cut shapes on the Silhouette
2. Make dinosaur “templates” with Publisher (or print a PDF)

For the Silhouette part, I have a single 12″ x 12″ file of shapes for dinosaur making. I printed this on green cardstock.

If you prefer to print and cut the shapes, here is a a slightly different version in letter size in Publisher and PDF formats.

Then, as he liked it so much with his ant activity, I made templates for him to paste the shapes on to. I agree with Little Family Fun’s way of making it open ended as well!

I made three dinosaur sample “templates”, available below, one on each page. Each shape is a little ‘enlarged’ from the shape cutouts above. Print as is in B&W, or open in Publisher to make your own version! These are both 8.5″ x 11″.

For the activity, I am giving him shapes, the three templates, and a glue stick.

I hope you enjoyed these FREE Silhouette Cameo templates and printables! Please also check out our 11 Dinosaur Tot Trays and Activities and 14 Dinosaur Preschool Trays!
