Dinosaur Sensory Bin


Dinosaur Theme Sensory Bin

Along with our RRSP Letter D week, we included DINOSAURS! Ladybug loves dinos, and we have never had a dinosaur sensory bin, so I put one together for the kids! Here is the dino set up we had, complete with our collection of dinosaur books and all of the dinos we have!

Dinosaur Theme Sensory Bin-9678

A few of the books we have and the toy bin we have…


Both of the boys enjoy the sensory bins immensely, they are still a big hit around here!

Ladybug loves our dino collection, and was thrilled that they were allowed into the schoolroom for the week {they are normally located elsewhere to play with}.Dinosaur Theme Sensory Bin-9700


Included in the bin itself:

Dinosaur Theme Sensory Bin-9686

  • rocks {from a craft store, and our colored rock collection}
  • beans
  • plastic dino toys from our dino set {the small ones}
  • scooping & sorting materials {I put these next to the bin}

Please read this carefully before linking up! This may no longer be the linky for you, so please glance through this list to be sure you want to stick around and link up with us!
By linking up you agree to the following:
  1. A photo and a link to your post may appear in a future Tot School post. You give me permission to choose a photo from the post you link up, and give me permission to use your ideas in my post. I will link back to you, mention your blog, and give you full credit for any ideas choose to share form your post. If you don’t want me sharing photos, your blog, or ideas, please don’t link up.
  2. Your post is a post written specifically for Tot School and not just an idea for tots. It features your own child{ren} in action. This is a community for moms to come together and share their journey with Tot School virtually.
  3. Provide a link back to Tot School within your blog post {you can use this link: or a direct link to the weekly post you link up to} if you link up. If you do not link back to Tot School, your link will be deleted. Link backs on the sidebar, or in a massive “I link up here” page don’t count ~ they are too difficult for me to find and the first thing I look for when verifying links is the link back.
  4. Link up your exact Tot School post {not your blog homepage} if you are unsure how to do that read this!
Each week I will feature photo{s} and ideas from blogs who link up. Sometimes it may be one simple idea, sometimes it may be a collection based around a concept .
