Sensory Mini Bin with Dinos

As soon as Damian noticed we were going to set up a volcano shelfie he immediately brought over his dinosaurs. We added some Playfoam Pluffle and they played for a good while! The texture of the Playfoam is very unique and was definitely Mia’s favorite.

Hubby took the kids on Saturday to our local public library and checked out a couple volcano books. The library is our go-to for themed books as they have almost every topic you can think of! Amazon and Half Price Books are also great places for affordable books.
