We found two games suitable for smaller children.
Go Diego Go - Great Dinosaur Rescue
The first is Go Diego Go - Great Dinosaur Rescue by Nick Jr..

3D Pets Dino - FREE
This 3D Pets game is available as a free download trial from games2download - or you can buy the full version.
Like other pets games, in this one you care for your pet dino - feeding it and teaching it to do tricks.
There is a free download on the ice age game 3 on this website so you can try it.
Zoo Tycoon is one of my kids favorite games. The original game, Zoo Tycoon II, has an extension pack that allows you to keep dinosaurs and other extinct animals in your zoo. This is a great way to learn about them as you have to feed them the correct diet and set up the correct habitat.
The zoo tycon lets you download a copy of Zoo Tycoon.

This one is more of a strategy game that includes prehistoric scenarios. You use the dinosaurs as your army.
This is the one my son really wanted to try! We will let you know how we get on with it!
