This week in our continuing holiday rush and post Christmas cleaning I've been into recreating and reusing some of our materials to make new activities. This dinosaur bin is a combination of Coffee Construction Site and Color your own Dinosaur Playscape.
First I put some dinosaur skeletons and small dinosaurs on the one side of the bin then I dumped the coffee beans left from the coffee construction site on top. I also found the dinosaur fabric in my craft cabinet someone gave me a bunch of old fabric and this was in there so I figured it would make a good base underneath to catch and escaping coffee beans.
I added some ripped up tissue paper in the center to be a jungle or plants for the dinosaurs to eat and some broken up sticks on the far end. I was trying to use some different textures and materials for the kids to explore.
