Digging For Dinosaur Fossils Sensory Bin: I previously shared an activity here on How to make Dinosaur Fossils? This is how we played with them!
We simply painted white circles onto the back of the dinosaur fossils and with a black permanent marker pen drew on uppercase and lowercase letter d.
The idea of the of the Digging for Dinosaur Fossils Sensory Bin is to search through the sand to find and sort the dinosaur figurines, dinosaur fossils with lowercase letter d and uppercase letter D into the matching baskets. It is a great opportunity to expose children to the letter D, and talk about words that begin with this letter sound.
The activity also became a bit like a puzzle, where Miss 4 was matching the dinosaurs figurines to the imprints in the fossils.
