Let's face it -- kids love to dig! Whether it's digging a hole at the beach or shoveling their way around the backyard, they will spend hours looking for buried treasures.
There were some super AWESOME ideas shared for creating your own Dinosaur Dig on the Discover & Explore linky last week. Kids will love to dig into these activities to learn more about dinosaurs and fossils.
Freeze the Dinosaurs
Bury in Clay
Life with Moore Babies created a really cool clay for their dino dig. They also created fossils on the top of the clay so the kids could examine them before digging.
Create an Excavation Bin
Munchkin and Bean used baking soda to replicate an Arctic dig site -- once frozen, the baking soda mixture looks like snow & ice!
Cover Dinos in Goo
Crayon Box Chronicles decided to cover their dinosaurs in goo for some great sticky adventures!
Finding Fossils in Sand
Digging in sand has never been so much fun! Going Blue, Too not only created a fun dinosaur dig with sand for the kids but they also give some wonderful details about how to expand the learning for a dino dig!
Thanks to everyone who linked up last week! This week's theme is Creating with Nature so be sure to share & visit for some cool ideas.
