Dinosaur ‘Fossil’ Hunting Sensory Activity 

Here’s a fun, Sensory Activity for children to play that also helps develops Fine motor control and hand strength…and a love of dinosaurs! 

Dinosaur fossil hunting Sensory Play.. #sensorydinohunt

In terms of science…no it’s not very true to life, but for younger children it’s a great introduction to ‘ fossil’ hunting. 

What do you need? 

  • Tray
  • Cous cous/sand/ kinetic sand -we used to different sizes of cous cous for effect!
  • Toy dinosaurs (or pretend fossils!)
  • Paint brush 

    What do they do?

    Have fun burying the dinosaurs in cous cous then discovering them by carefully brushing away the cous cous…then bury them again!!

    Like this? We’d love you to share via social media! Even better share your own #sensorydinohunt pictures!

      1. Your welcome, so pleased you liked it. The cous cous is also great on sensitive skin if sand irritates little hands too! We reviewed some kinetic sand a while back, need to try it with that too- imagine that would be fun! Thanks so much for the comment, would love to hear how you get on trying the activity with your son 😊
