Digging for dinosaurs in the sand!

The boys both love digging around in sand, and they both love dinosaurs. So I thought I would stick some dinosaurs in a tub of sand and see what they made of it. They loved it! My toddler loved burying the dinosaurs and then digging them out, whilst my preschooler enjoyed making big sandcastles on top of the dinosaurs. They came back to it several times, and had a really good time! Simple, but a great one for their imaginations and getting their hands dirty.

We love our ‘really useful box’ – here is a link to it, and to the dinosaurs. Please note that this is an affiliate link, which means that if you purchase the items here I get a small commission at no cost to you.


Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
