Hi, we did a fun dinosaur craft today!

Here’s our process, I did pre-cut the shapes to make the dinosaur, then just because we have girls, we had to glam it up!

Dino Dig: I made these ‘fossils’ out of Plaster Of Paris. Its only $2.50 for a HUGE bag from Wal-mart. I put wet sand in a plastic dish and smoothed it out. Then used one of our little plastic dinosaurs to push an impression into the sand. After all the ‘molds’ were ready, I made up the plaster of paris and poured it into the sand carefully. Let it set until hard then dusted off our ‘fossils’. Then I hid them in our sandbox and let the kids do a ‘Dino Dig’!

Here we are digging!

After we were done re-hiding and re-finding the dinos for the umpteenth time, we brought them in and matched them to our plastic dino’s to identify their type! Super fun!
