We did do a fun project last week. Miss 8 got to pretend she was an archaeologist.
Doesn’t that look like fun? She was digging away all day long. Her sisters were entranced by her finds. I was able to get a lot of “mom” work done, without the guilt of kids glued to the tv set. It was a winning situation for all of us!
I have a friend (Jillian the *wonderful*) who created a project like this for her kiddos. She used some Plaster of Paris and a bag of tiny plastic dinosaurs. I actually meant to use her idea (until mom-in-law bought this kit for Miss 8’s birthday) and still may for future dinosaur digs. Just in case you have a dino-loving child or loved one, here’s a link to the kit:
