My kids love dinosaurs. Most kids do. So while I of course do make regular dino bags with hair gel and little foam or stretchy dinos. I wanted to do something a little different and exciting. Enter the Dinosaur Bone Excavating Sensory Bag. We eat a lot of chicken in our house so I used chicken bones. I just boiled the bones after cooking it and then once all the meat was off I bleached the bones in some hydrogen peroxide. You could use any bones though that you like rib bones might be fun. I do have to say that if you are using this bag in your classroom I would save it for later in the year. To give you an idea we are studying dinosaurs this month in preschool. So when school started in September the kids had sensory bags that were simpler and less fragile. Now that they have been in school for a while this bag is okay for them. They know better than to try and pop one of the bones through. With that said you know your audience so you can determine when a bag like this is right for them.
clear packing tape or duct tape
Rice, sand, beans, or pebbles
1. Add rice or other material to the baggie just a few tablespoons you don’t want the baggie too full. I usually fill the baggie about 1/3 full
2. Add bones.
3. Fold the baggies over and push out all the air before you seal it.
4. Seal baggie with tape on the top. I like to fold over the ziploc seal part and tape that down.
5. Place the now taped and sealed baggie upside down inside another baggie.
6. Seal this baggie on all edges with clear packing tape. Trim the edges when you are done to remove excess tape.
