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!
