The Hooligans are just loving the small world play these days, so today I set up this dinosaur activity bin. It’s a combination of small world, sensory and water play all wrapped up into one bin, so what’s not to love?
Did you see the Ocean Sensory Bin that we were playing with last week? It was a huge hit, and when we’d finished playing with it, I drained the water, but left the pebbles and beads in the bin. That’s what I used to start the dinosaur bin today.
If your Hooligans are very young, and stones and beads are a choking concern for you, leave them out. They’ll be happy to just have the animals in the water. The baby was trying to mess around with things when I was setting up the bin, so I tossed a couple of fish and some corks into the bowl of water that the Hooligans wash their hands in when we’re outside, and she was more than happy splashing around in that while I did what I had to do.
