We have been somewhat immersed in archaeology lately. We have been listening to Jonathan Park CD's, playing Roman Town, and reading books. So the visit to the Heard museum a couple of weeks ago was a perfect field trip. After observing the animatronic dinosaurs and the fossils and bugs, we browsed the gift shop. Normally we purchase a magnet for our fridge, but they did not have one.
While looking for the magnet, FRitW noticed a little plastic container - similar to a playdoh canister. The label said, 'Nature Sand Dinosaur Fossil' and it was a reasonable price, so Maggie, FRitW, and MT each bought one.
They turned out to be very fun! Maggie led the way, carefully scraping her sand and brushing away the excess sand. FRitW and MT were able to do theirs on their own as well. I thought that there would be a plastic skull encased in the sand, but instead the kids discovered an entire tiny little skeleton!
Each little piece had to be uncovered, dug out, and brushed off. Once all the bones were found, they had to assemble the dinosaur. Aren't these cute little guys? Oh, and cute dinosaurs too!
I am a Mom. That is my definition of me. I am Mom to four loud, busy, creative, strong-willed children. My husband is my very best friend and thankfully, just as strongwilled as our kids! Our house is loud, and I mean really loud, and disorganized, but always interesting. We homeschool, craft, play in the dirt alot, and love to travel!
