Dinosaur Scavenger Hunt and Creative Play
As mom to two smart dynamic science loving daughters, I consider myself an expert in many different things. Because our youngest daughter has been obsessed with dinosaurs for the past two years straight, I’m an expert at all dinosaur creative play scenarios, roars, voices when our toy dinosaurs are conversing, dinosaur names and negotiating when dinosaur playtime is over and I’m left convincing my strong willed daughter it’s clean up time. That’s a lot of titles to hold but I’ve had just as much fun learning along the way as she has had playing with her favorite dinosaurs for the last 700+ days consecutively. This week she was delighted to discover her new PLAYMOBIL Hidden Temple with T-Rex and PLAYMOBIL Explorer Quad with T-Rex from Walmart. With a few PLAYMOBIL toys already at home, we know they are high quality with strong attention to detail. The new play set was perfect for a dinosaur scavenger hunt and creative play.
The PLAYMOBIL play set comes with many detailed pieces and accessories including dinosaurs, bones, plants, people figurines and tools for their adventures. Little sister and I constructed the structures together for a fabulous learning opportunity. She pretended the instructions were a treasure map and was intent on getting to the last step. Watching her excitement as we built the hidden temple together I was quietly scheming to deconstruct it so she could put it back together for more creative play.

Dinosaur Scavenger Hunt
The opportunities for a dinosaur scavenger hunt are endless and you can use the same list repeatedly by simply changing the original layout of the PLAYMOBIL play set.
- Big dinosaur
- Small dinosaur
- Something yellow
- A plant
- Something to climb up
As your child gets comfortable quickly finding the items on the dinosaur scavenger hunt list, increase the challenge by adding tasks.
- Make something light up
- Rearrange the trees
- Place two friends together
- Rescue a dinosaur
- Set up camp
- Deliver supplies
With so many different dinosaur scavenger hunt lists in mind, the PLAYMOBIL Hidden Temple with T-Rex is a toy play set that can grow with my child. So far she has played with it everyday before school and the minute she gets home after her school day. Next up – I’m going to ask her to prepare a scavenger hunt list for me for more creative expression opportunities. PLAYMOBIL play sets are available in a variety of themes at Walmart in the toy aisles.
Do you have dino obsessed children in your home that would love to have some fun with a dinosaur scavenger hunt and creative play too?
