Challenge number 1 – Dino Hoop

🦖 For this challenge you need to Capture baby dinos with a hoop or hoops. You can make a hoop (use the template here) or use hula hoops to capture your toy dinosaurs. You might see Ranger Ron doing this skill in his Dino Skills Games feature on his YouTube channel. 

🦖 This is best as an outside activity, so do this in the garden or park if you can.

🦖 Stand between 1-3 metres away from your toys (depending on your size and age) and then see how many you can hoop during a 1 minute timer.

Ron’s advice –

“I suggest that you practice first and then do it for real! Set yourself a target/ goal of how many you think you can get in 1 minute. When you successfully do this/ achieve this in one go/ one minute game, you can award yourself this challenge on your Badge chart.”

Challenge number 2 – Dino Toss game

🦖 For this challenge you need to start with a bucket or container with around 20 of your dinosaur toys that are made of plastic or rubber and are not fragile.

🦖You will need to create 3 score zones, marked clearly. Hula Hoops work well for this, or use another item like string to mark out the zones.  If you put one of these quite close and then the other 2 can be further and further from you to give you a more challenging target. Give the one closest one point and the two further away may be give them higher points, like say 2 points or 5 or 10 as they are harder to get.

🦖You will then allow yourself one minute to toss your dino toys into the zones. You can then add up your score at the end of 1 minute.

Ron’s advice –

ranger ron dino club

“It is recommended as an outside activity ideally on grass.  Set yourself a target / goal end score to achieve and get it inside 1 minute. You can have as many goes as you need and when you have done it you can award yourself this challenge on your badge chart.”

🦕 Tip – You can use a hoop or you can create one with string, ties or similar…….🦕

Challenge number 3 – Dino Nest game

🦖For this challenge you have to roll dinosaur eggs (tennis balls or similar) into a nest area.

🦖The skill here is carefully stopping the balls (dino eggs) in the next area.

🦖 Set up a nest area with a hoop or string or similar and then roll your balls (dino eggs) in to the zone from 1 to 3 metres away depending on your age and ability.

🦖 Set yourself a target score and set out to get this score inside a 1 minute time limit.  This game can work well on carpet or grass.

🦖 Once you achieve your target score in one of your one minute goes, you can award yourself this challenge on your badge chart.

Ron’s advice –

“You can make this harder by creating several areas and then assigning different point values to each. See how many of the different points you can get. Make sure your dino eggs stay on the ground or they will crack!”

 

Challenge number 4 – Dino Toy hide and seek

🦖 For this challenge you need help from an adult and then you need to use your dino tracking and hunting skills!

🦖 The adult hides 3 of your favourite dinosaur toys around your home or garden.

🦖 They then lay down a dino footprint trail for when you go hunting. These are a mix of brown and orange footprints. Near each of the 3 orange footprints there should be one of the dino toys hidden.

🦖 This can be set this up in an area of your house or garden when you are not watching.

🦖 The Dino tracks are a mix of brown and orange. A brown one means you keep going and find the next brown one. An orange one means there is a toy dinosaur nearby! So get hunting and seek your toy and discover which Dino it is!

Ron’s advice –

“The idea is for adults to lay brown dinosaur footprints as the main route and change the footprint for orange and every time there is a hidden a dinosaur. This means you have to look around that spot for a dinosaur. When you complete this hunt and find all the dinosaurs, you can award yourself this challenge.”

Challenge number 5 – Dino Skittles game

🦖 For this challenge, you need some of your dinosaur toys that stand up quite well and around 3 tennis balls or similar soft balls.

🦖 You will lay out 6 of your dinosaurs that stand up well and either inside of outside on a flat surface play dinosaur skittles.

🦖 You have one minute to score as many as you can.

Ranger Ron’s advice –

“When you have practiced a few times you set yourself a target score as a goal and when you then achieve it, you can award yourself this challenge.”

 

Challenge number 6  – Dino Fishing

🦖 For this challenge you need to adapt around 10 of your dinosaur toys to have a loop you can use in a hook-a-duck / hook-a-dinosaur style game.

🦖 You will also need a stick  at least 1 metre in length and string and something that will work as a hook – thick cardboard can work quite well for this.

🦖 Sometimes it helps to add weight to the hook with a coin or other improvised weight. See our resource help here

Ranger Ron’s advice –

ranger ron dino club

“Once you have made the rod and hook on a string, you can set up your dinosaur fishing game. You have one minute to hook as many as you can. They should be at least 1 metre away from you so you need to dangle the rod to collect them. Once you have had a practice, set yourself a target score and then get this and you can award yourself this challenge.”
