Dinosaur Excavation Sensory Bin

Children cannot get enough of our fun dinosaur activities! This is such a fun theme to celebrate each February. Since it is also cold and snowy outside, we’re taking advantage and doing fun indoor activities. If you loved our Watercolor Snow Painting activity, you’ll love this Dinosaur Excavation Sensory Bin! We buried toy dinosaurs in snow. Our children then become Paleontologists and got to excavate the dinosaurs! It was so much fun!

It was so fun to hear the children’s excitement each time they found a dinosaur! I heard things from ‘I found a dinosaur, yes!’ to ‘there are dinosaurs in here…weird!’. We will definitely be doing this activity again. It was so easy and fun! Let us know if you try it with your children and what they think. We’d love to hear from you!
