Are your kids learning all about dinosaurs? Then, you have to add this Dinosaur Sensory Bin to your unit. This open-ended, sensory activity is a fun way for children to play, use their imaginations, and explore what they are learning. Most importantly, your kids will have fun!
If you are a homeschooler, you can use this Dinosaur Sensory Tub while you read to your children during your morning basket time. You could also leave this activity out (or strew) with a few books for them to explore on their own. I love to use Professor Noggin’s Dinosaurs Trivia Cards so my kids can identify the dinosaurs in the bin and learn facts about them. The possibilities are endless!
How To Set-Up A Dinosaur Sensory Bin:
- Activity Tray or Small Bin
- Blue Gravel
- Small Rocks
- Mini Plastic Dinosaur Toys
- Mini Artificial Plants & Trees
How To Set-Up:
To create this dinosaur sensory bin for your kids, add sand to a large bowl. Then, add water and mix until you’ve created thick “mud.” Next, add the wet sand to the tray but leave some space for your river.
After spreading the sand, add blue gravel to the bottom of your river. Then, line the river with small rocks and add water. Next, add mini artificial plants and trees to the sandy areas. You can also add moss, sticks, leaves or any other item that you would like in your sensory bin. Finally, add a variety of mini plastic dinosaurs in the bin.
This Dinosaur Sensory Bin is an entertaining sensory activity for kids. They will use their imaginations while exploring, playing and having fun!
