Dinosaur and wild animals rescue.


There is so much that you can do with our awesome Mystery bags that you will never run out of ideas. More than a toy, they are a source of endless activities ๐Ÿ˜Š

And to prove it, here you have this fine motor development activity that also work on their color sorting and counting abilities.

For this activity you will need:

  • Figurines from your mystery bag: Dinosaur and wild animals
  • Rubber bands, elastic or masking tape. Whatever you have handy.
  • Plastic container
  • Tweezers or chopsticks
  • Color sorting containers

Start placing the rubber bands around the plastic container so you create a net. Add more or less rubber bands depending on your kidโ€™s abilities to work with tweezers. I personally made two containers:

  1. One with rubber bands- easier for my 3 years old to recue the figurines with the tweezers
Dinosaur rescue with tweezers
  1. and then a second one with masking tape and chopstick, slightly more difficult to get the animals out (for my 5 years old)

Add the figurines and let them rescue the animals one by one with the tweezers (not with the handsโ€ฆ they will try ๐Ÿ˜Š) and then place them in the correct color container, so they can also work on their color sorting.

Once they have finish rescue all the animals, lets count the figurines on each color container and work out which one has more or less, etc.

ย As usual, my kids took the activity further than expected and brought grass, water and rocks to create a play environment for the animals ๐Ÿ˜Š. So it end up being also a magnificent sensory tray activity.
