The dinosaur activity is a really great quiet activity for one child. They can really get their hands into it and feel free to make funny voices and create their own make-believe dinosaur world. It's a real favourite at our house. We've re-created the scene with playdough too, as you can see below
The sand trays by themselves is a great one to do with a couple of children working side by side. The key is to put two of everything into a basket in the middle to stop fights! I use anything i can find in the kitchen and recycling that is good to dig, scoop, pour or stir with. Our favourites are:
- empty yoghurt and jelly containers
- small plastic teaspoons (from the picnic aisle at the supermarket for just a couple of dollars)
- scoops from powdered laundry detergent boxes
- small jugs of water
- toilet rolls
Lots of sandy learning and fun!!
