Welcome to a Dinosaurs World, Sensory play

Standard

We use a lot of poster board, foam paper and plastic animals around here, it seems that they are always being reused and almost always in new ways.

One way to use them is making a play land for dinos and bugs.

We chose a light brown poster board to resemble sand

I glued a piece of blue foam paper that I had cut into a pond shape, onto the poster board

I put some clear stones around half of the “water”

Added some cut pieces of wood, a stick and leaves

Added a patch of grass and a small cave house we purchased at the local pet store

Added some rocks, a small nest and plastic dinos and bugs we bought from the dollar tree

And boom hours of fun for the munchkins where the dinos have their own world.

  2. My 8 year old would LOVE this. He’s a huge dinosaur fan. Maybe I can even get Madison interested although I’m sure he would mind. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing this. Heading to the dollar tree this weekend so I plan on picking up a few things along the way. I’m going to have to start sharing a few of the fun crafts I’ve picked up from other blogs and share them linking back of course. πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!

  3. My toddler would LOVE this. Such a great idea! Can I ask where you find the insects and little dinosaurs? I’m sure they’re everywhere but I SWEAR I can never find them!

    • Thank you. We get most of our plastic animals from the dollar tree, occasionally we find some at family dollar or Walmart in the dollar toy section, and once in a great while we will get them from Michaels(they are kind of pricey there) Hope that helps πŸ™‚

I would love to hear from you...
