Creating sensory bins is one of the most fun parts of planning my environment. Each one can be different depending on the theme we’re learning about. Nearly anything can go into a bin, just see what you have! I pulled together a combination of materials we already had to create our dinosaur sensory bin. For inspiration, I’ve included some other dinosaur sensory bins that might be of interest to you.

There are lots of options for making dinosaur sensory bins. Ours is an excavation dig theme. The dinosaur bones set pictured was originally from the dollar spot at Target several years ago. I’ve included links to other dinosaur skeleton sets that you might consider.

The sifters that are pictured are no longer available but some are included in this Dino-Dig Excavation set. I wish they were more readily available. I bought mine on clearance from Discount School Supply and I can’t seem to find them elsewhere. A sand sensory bin staple!

There’s no end to the ways you can set up your dinosaur sensory bin. Use some creativity and make more than one.

Rotate your sensory bin often so children do not become bored with the contents.
