We are HUGE dinosaur fans in this house and when I heard that there was a follow-up to Dino Dan and Dino Dan: Trek’s Adventures, I knew my kids would be thrilled. Dino Dana takes children on a whole new level of dinosaur adventures. The series, which starts streaming on Amazon Prime on May 26, combines live-action with CGI animation, the series features two sisters – along with 11 new prehistoric creatures. We’re going to tell you about the show and show you how to make a dinosaur diorama. Read on. Dino Dana Premieres on Amazon Prime May 26 + Make a Dinosaur Diorama (VIDEO)However, my six-year-old son had to be convinced to give it a chance with a girl at the helm. He’s at the age where he prefers boys to girls. However, once he saw the opening to Dino Dana and saw the troodon dinosaur in the first episode, he was hooked.
Check out our tutorial:
To make your diorama:
We used a brown foam sheet and drew on it with a black sharpie to represent the library exterior in the scene.
Check out the trailer to the new series:
Created by J.J. Johnson (Dino Dan, Annedroids), Dino Dana is executive produced by Sinking Ship partners Johnson, Blair Powers and Christin Simms with animation executive produced by Matthew J.R. Bishop.

My niece is nuts about dinosaurs. I bet she would love this show especially since the character is a girl a little older than her. She definitely has a lot of dinosaur figures to make her own diorama.

I remember making a diorama in grade school. It was fun making one. I love the dinosaur themed one. I will show this to my granddaughter. Maybe she’d like to make one too, even if she is more into unicorns than dinosaurs. 🙂

You had me at Dana! So excited that someone realized girls can be into dinosaurs too. Can’t wait to check it out with my 4 year old dinosaur lovers. Hope they have pterodactyls which are her favorites/

My son goes crazy or dinosaurs! We will have to check out this series, and we definitely need to make a diorama. He would love this, and it is such a great afternoon activity.
This looks amazing!! I love there’s a girl in charge. My boys probably won’t like it either but I’m sure they’ll get past. Thanks for the info. Can’t get enough dinosaur content.
