How to Make A Dinosaur Gelli World

Zimpli Kids have done it again!  Not only have they created some great slime but in addition, they have now combined this with dinosaurs to create the Gelli Worlds Dino Pack.  Naturally, my son was overjoyed when I waved the box at him saying “guess what mummy has!”

The look on his face was priceless.


Hardly able to contain his excitement, he bounded over like an excited puppy ready to open up the box and discover its contents.

But, rather than doing a basic review I decided to go one better.  Instead, we opted for an arts and craft project.  A dinosaur world to contain our Gelli Worlds Dino Pack.

Gelli Worlds Dino Pack

The pack contains:

5 x 10g Sachets of Green Gelli Powder

8 Dinosaur Figures

An Inflatable Play Tray


Safety Information

There are no harmful chemicals

Gelli is 100% biodegradable

Safe to use – non-irritant

Environmentally friendly


Educational Applications

This is fantastic for sensory play for a range of ages.

It is a great way to teach children about dinosaurs.

Most importantly, it’s not JUST educational, it’s fun!

The Arts and Crafts Part

What You’ll Need

A large box from the supermarket with holes at the side to make it easy to transport with the play tray


Blue paint(s)

Green paint(s)

Dinosaur and plant stickers



Find a nice big box

Cut down the left and right of one large side to make a flap

Paint the insides = sides, back and edges of the bottom

Add stickers

Blow up your play tray

Pop this into your dinosaur world box

Add 3000ml warm water

Sprinkle of over a pack of gelli powder evenly


Leave for 10 minutes

Add in the toys

Have fun!!!!!!


What Did Little Man Think?

He loved it!!!  Little man loved playing with the gelli and the toys.  He sat for ages letting it slide through his fingers, scooping it up, moving it around the tray, covering the dinosaurs with the gelli and of course playing with the dinosaurs.  He was totally absorbed in what he was doing and kept himself entertained for ages.  His sisters were impressed with his artwork and of course, couldn’t wait to get their hands into the gooey green dinosaur infested goo.

The box was great as it added to the fun.  It also meant the play tray was easy to transport whilst it had the gelli.  We had kept the flap on the box as this could be lifted to help contain the tray when moved from one room to another.
