I’ve been having a blast shooting train videos for my son’s new YouTube Train channel, Kian’s World of Trains, and showing all the ways you can have fun with trains! Make sure to check out his painting with trains and train sandwich videos!

Sensory bins are wonderful for exploring textures and imaginative play!

We created this fun Train and Dinosaure sensory bin using shaving cream and washable paints. Watch the video above to see all the fun in action! This is one that kids age 5+ can do on their own with adult supervision!

Read more below on what you’ll need to create your own Train and Dino sensory bin.

Train and Dinosaur Shaving Cream Sensory Bin – Materials:

– Shaving Cream
– Large plastic bin
Washable paints
Toy trains and dinosaurs


Step 1. Fill your bin with shaving cream and add dabs of colored paint Mix the paint along with shaving cream and add your trains and dinosaurs. Explore the colors mixing, get your hands messy and play! Try to uncover and guess which trains and dinos are underneath the painted shaving cream.

Step 2. When you’re all done, move your trains and dinos to a plastic container and set up a fun washing station in the bathtub or outdoors with a hose!
