20 Spring Crafts and Activities for Kids
Written by Jen Betterley
Got a couple of young dino lovers at home? Don't miss out on Mom Stacie's excellent idea for making a dinosaur excavation sensory tub, featured on her blog, Motherhood on a Dime. Perfect for a home sandbox or for a sunny day spent on the porch, this activity is easy to put together, and we're sure your young paleontologists will have a blast seeing what they can excavate!
For the "dinosaur" bones, Stacie simply washed some leftover chicken bones and let them dry out for a couple of days. Then, she set the kids loose with paint brushes and tweezers for their big dig. If you have a good amount of sand to work with, consider adding an extra large dog bone (purchased from your local pet shop) — you're sure to get some "oohs and ahs" over that one! Check out the rest of Stacie's post for more tips and a great dinosaur book recommendation.
