Jurassic Jigglers (Sensory Play)

Sorry that my posts haven’t been constant this week– I had a little health episode and had to go to the hospital. I am fine– but your on going prayers and good vibes are greatly appreciated. You guys the beeeeest!

On a happier and more colorful note- here is a project I did with #MyLittleSweetPotatoPie last week. She and I share a love of Jell-O’s wiggly jiggly nature and dinosaurs. So I combined the two to make a fun sensory play activity for baby: Jurassic Jigglers :) She loved going on her baby version of a “dino excavation” and I am sure your little paleontoloigist will too!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Small Canning Jars

Green Jell-o

Toy Dinosaurs

Cooking Spray

Let’s get started…

1.) Spray the inside of your jars lightly with cooking spray and stick a dinosaur in each one.


2.) Prepare the jello as directed on the box and our into your jars, completely covering your dines. Pop in the fridge! Your Jell-o will take about 4 hours to step up, so you will need to allow some prep time before your little one plays. I did mine the night before.


3.) Using a butter knife, separate the Jell-O from the side of your jar. Once you have run the knife all the way around the edge of the jar, give it a little shake and you Jurassic Jiggler should pop out. I recommend popping them out right over the spot you want them to land in the sensory bin as they can be fragile.

 Happy excavating!
