Frozen Dinosaur Sensory Bin Experiment for Kids
Fun dinosaur activities are my girls jam!
This one was easy peasy and all it took was one little thing we did to make this fun activity for summer!
That “thing” was inserting them into the freezer for some icy fun!
This method is lots of fun and really easy!
You can also try a fun dinosaur eggs activity by inserting dinosaurs into a balloon with a bit of water, freezing them and enjoying a fun dino excavation.
How cool is that?
This time around I added them into a container and froze them.
I will be sharing some fun ideas and how we made this simple activity super duper fun!

As mentioned above another fun way to make “faux” real dinosaur eggs and include a fun dinosaur eggs hatching activity is to create dinosaur balloons.
What is a dinosaur balloon, you might ask?
It’s known as the frozen water balloon experiment.
You can create dinosaur eggs by creating sensory balloons and inserting dino toys into a balloon, then adding water, freezing the balloon with the dino in it, and removing the balloon to create an egg dinosaur activity for a fun dinosaur rescue activity!
Excavating dinosaurs from ice
We used an ice cube tray and bin to insert dinosaurs into.
Then, add water and freeze the trays with the dino/water in it.
