Tomorrow we are going back in time at Hands On!
Way back in time.
It’s Dino Dig Camp here at the museum and the kids participating have an opportunity to become paleontologists for the day.
We have a feeling that once the kids have had a taste of discovering dinosaurs, their curiosity will lead them to want to learn more and more.
And since we are feeding your child’s interest in the giant extinct creatures, we thought it only fair to gather some sites and point you in the right direction so you can continue encouraging your child’s love of learning about dinosaurs.
We’ve scoured the internet for links to websites featuring crafts and further study if your little dinosaur digger comes home from camp eager to continue exploring.
Hopefully, this might make your afternoons easier.
First, we’ve stirred the imagination. Now, we’ve gathered the details. All you have to do is to gather the supplies.
A simple and cute dinosaur stained glass craft for your window.
A bit more involved but a great pay off in the end – do-it-yourself dinosaur fossils.
Using the ever-convenient, multi-purpose craft item – the pipe-cleaner – you can make miniature dinosaurs.
Ridiculously easy, but still so charming – using play-doh and construction paper to create dinosaurs and eggs hatching.
Have a dinosaur dig in your backyard.
Create a miniature dinosaur world for your child’s plastic play dinosaurs.
And if you can’t get outside, then just create a dinosaur land in a large cardboard box.
You and your little ones can even sing about dinosaurs, if singing is your thing.
After all the crafting is done and the mess is cleaned up, it’s time to sit back and ….
enjoy your child’s creations.
(And – please – feel free to share some photos of the finished products with us. We’ll post them here for everyone to enjoy. E-mail us at email@example.com)
