Inside: If your child loves dinos, they’ll love this dinosaur world sensory bin that encourages open-ended, creative play. Check out all our awesome dinosaur activities for kids here. 

If you’ve been following along in our at home summer camp, you’ll know we’ve completed the ocean activities for kids series in week one.

So far, in our dinosaur activities series, we’ve made a cute dinosaur handprint art keepsake and had messy fun with our dinosaur STEM activity.

Today, we’re going old school with a twist and creating a dinosaur world sensory bin.

You know, back to the time when you were a kid and you just played with toys and your imagination.

No screens. No fancy supplies. Just your child and their creativity.

Imagine that!

But this time, instead of just setting your kids loose with their toys, we’re creating a small world scene in a sensory bin for your kids to immerse themselves in.

It’s going to provide your kids with so much fun they won’t want to stop playing.

Read on to see how to make a dinosaur small world sensory bin for your kids.
