Dinosaurs ABC’s Sensory Bin

Learning the ABC’s is the first step to reading: recognizing the sounds and then correlating it to the letters. It’s time again for another fantastic month of alphabet fun with the 31 Days of ABC! All this month you can look forward to 31 more days of activities, crafts, books, apps, and more, all dedicated to teaching young children the alphabet.
I am so happy to be working with an amazing group of kid bloggers, who will be sharing their ideas with us in the coming days. So join us as we jump, skip, hop, and read our way through the alphabet this October!
Today’s letter is D, D for Dinosaurs!

Dinosaurs bin
This is a simple and easy setup too! You will need:

  • A bin/container
  • Fake grass
  • Beans/lentils (or any other sensory bin filler)
  • wooden chips
  • marker
  • dinosaurs

Materials needed
Add the grass and beans/lentils to the bin. Write the ABC’s on the wood chips with a marker. Hide the chips in the bin.
Wooden chip letters
Lastly, add the dinosaurs to the sensory bin!
Dinosaurs
You can keep this activity child-led, thus without too much adult intervention. Incidental learning will still happen…
If you do want to add some instruction, you can ask your child to look for the letters of his name, order the letters in alphabetical order or spell familiar words. You can also play a hide-and-seek game where the dinosaurs need to find the letters. The dinosaurs can jump on the letters and say the sound in a “dinosaur” voice!
Abcs games
This simple dinosaurs ABC’s sensory bin has so many possibilities for fun learning! Let your child explore and learn at the same time!
