Play Scene: Dinosaur Island

Last week, my son and I spent the day at the museum.  He loved the dinosaurs the best.

I enjoy using things we do together as inspiration for facilitating play, and so we created a Dinosaur Play Scene. Come and see Dinosaur Island.

Materials

Under-bed storage plastic container (or other plastic container)

Sticks, bark and rocks

Log

Dinosaur figurines

Food colouring

Set up

1. I placed a log inside the container, with a few sticks, bark and rocks. My son filled the container with water & I added a few drops of blue food colouring (it’s very diluted so doesn’t stain hands or clothes).

2. Add dinosaur figurines and that’s it.

Kelly and her husband Matthew seek to live a fun and adventurous life with their four children and pet bird.

    Thanks for linking Kell. I’ve linked back. It’s always nice for people to see other ideas on the same topic. I love that water was included in yours.

    When did you go to the Queensland Museum? We may have crossed paths on the same day! Did you see a family of five with tornado twins? That may have been slightly stressed us
