Dinosaur Activities for Toddlers and Big Brothers

Frozen Dinosaur Eggs – Paging Fun for Mums

How cool are these frozen eggs with a dinosaur just trapped inside the ice? They are so simple to make and are a great dinosaur activity for toddlers and older boys to explore together.

You might want to think about melting the eggs with warm water as well as excavating them with a hammer!

Fizzing Dinosaur Eggs – Preschool Powol Packets -Here’s another dinosaur egg activity, but this one involves gloop and lots of fizzing fun.

Let your boys get stuck in there together and watch them have lots of fizzing fun!

Sand and Cornstarch Dinosaur Fossils – Coffee Cups and Crayons -This activity requires some advanced planning as you need 36 hours for the fossils to dry but then you can show your boys how to excavate fossils!

You never know, you might have some future paleontologists on your hands.

Dinosaur Volcano Science Sensory Bin – Little Bins for Little Hands -Now this sensory bin looks like so much fun you might just want to get in there and play too!

Have your older boy helps to set this one up and then your toddler can join in the fun and watch the volcano erupt!
