10 Dinosaur Sensory Activities

Hello lovelies! Last week’s Discover & Explore theme was dinosaurs, and there were tons of great ideas added to the collection! The topic of fossils and dinosaurs lends itself nicely to sensory play, so I thought I would share some of the wonderful sensory play ideas from the party to inspire you next time your littles are in the mood for some rompin’ stompin’ roarin’ sensory FUN! There were LOTS of sensory play ideas linked up this week so it was hard to choose which ones to feature- be sure to check out the original post to view the entire collection so you don’t miss out on any of them.
