I am so excited that this month’s theme for the Poppins Book Nook is dinosaurs. Somehow (??) we haven’t done a lot of dinosaur activities here at home yet, so this gave us the chance to explore a lot of new dinosaur books and activities.
I’m sure you’ve noticed we are big fans of sensory bins and small world play. Besides being a lot of fun, they also provide many great learning opportunities. In many of the sensory posts on this site I list additional ideas for learning activities to go along with each sensory bin. This post from Two-Daloo tells more about how sensory play can benefit language development.
For the Poppins Book Nook on May 27th, I will be sharing our take on a dinosaur sensory small world along with some of our favorite dinosaur books. In the meantime, I thought you might be interested in checking out these amazing dinosaur activities.
