Kids Activities, Family Travel & Fun Ways to Learn

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.


 Create Your Own Dinosaur Dig

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.


 Dino Dig in Ice

Freeze the Dinosaurs

Both Happy Hooligans and Little Bins for Little Hands shared how to freeze dinosaurs and then use water & salt to 'dig' out the reptiles.


Dinosaur Dig in clay

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 a Dinosaur Excavation

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!


Sticky Dinosaur Goo

Cover Dinos in Goo

Crayon Box Chronicles decided to cover their dinosaurs in goo for some great sticky adventures!

Tips for Creating a Dinosaur Dig

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.
