Dinosaur Sensory Bin.

Our Rice and Pom Pom Sensory Bin lasted a good couple of days before we started getting bored of it and it seemed like a shame to just throw out perfectly good rice, don't worry I didn't cook it I reused it in a new sensory bin!

We are STILL obsessed with Dinosaurs in this house, I don't think its going away quickly, everything we do revolves around dinosaurs right now, our books, our bath times, our playtime, days out...dinosaurs always come into play somewhere! Back in January I turned a big cardboard box into a 'dinoland' small world play box, well it started getting tatty and it was time for a new playground for our dinosaurs.

What you will need:

  • we use under bed storage boxes for our sensory bins as they keep the mess contained and are the perfect height for Jenson and Evie to play comfortably.
  • rice (we had ours left over from the last sensory bin)
  • compost (we had ours left over from a seed planting session) 
  • small world dinosaurs
  • leaves etc from a nature walk
  • small world 'rocks' 

We didn't go on a nature walk our front garden had all we needed....


  1. I think I need to try something like this as Hendrix has all of a sudden decided he's scared of dinosaurs and as soon as they come on telly he hides, this might be just the type if thing he needs to stop him being frightened! xx

  2. I great way to help bring dinosaurs to life #playtime
