VIDALFORCE Dinosaur Jelly (12 Supplied)
About this deal
Swamp Plants – If you have grown some cress in small plant pots then you can either empty the contents into the swamp which makes it even more muddy and gooey – alternatively if you are using this with younger toddlers then you may wish to keep them in their pots if they are likely to try and eat the soil! Either way, add your cress to the swamp and you are nearly there!
Dino Jelly (Vidal) 66 Count | Monmore Confectionery
Jelly Swamp– Add the jelly to the tray and break up with a fork to achieve a gooey wet texture for the dinosaur swamp (If you don’t have jelly then you could use blue water beads – just be sure to use safe to eat beads for little ones) The Tray– For this sensory activity we used a blue plastic tray with a white sheet of paper in the bottom so that when the jelly went on top it had more colour – you could use a clear or white tray and probably wouldn’t need to add this step

If you live elsewhere then you may be able to get hold of blue jelly/jello more easily?) Let me know in the comments! If however you are not able to get hold of blue jelly then the best thing to do is to add food colouring when making the jelly – just make up the jelly as you normally would, and add the food colouring before setting. If you live in the UK you might already know that blue jelly isn’t really something you can get hold of very easily in the supermarkets!We often see beautiful set ups and gorgeous play trays, and yes I love to set those up, but this was even more fun because it was just using up what we had! So don’t be discouraged when things don’t turn out as planned, you never know what you might come up with!

And I did not let my cress grow too much and then dry out so I could add some greenery to the swamp(!)
Your Dinosaur Swamp Activity makes for a great stand alone sensory play activity but if you want to take it a little further, then why not encourage your little ones to really take care of their dinosaurs by adding a washing station for the dinosaurs to get cleaned up!
