Setting Up a Dino Dig
Smarty really wanted to make an extension activity for Argentina that would have something to do with dinosaurs. Initially she wanted to excavate toy dinosaurs from a plaster kit like the ones that you can buy at a Dollar store. I looked up DIY instructions for a dino excavation, but they required plaster of Paris or something similar, and we did not have it on hand. Smarty then went to one of her favorite books - 150 Screen Free Activities by Asia Citro and picked an alternative project of a dino dig. Being a big kid, she was able to set it up on her own following instructions. All she needed was about 1.5 cup of baking soda, food coloring and some water. She buried her dinosaurs in a soda dough and left her dig dry overnight.
Do your kids enjoy sensory play? Smarty seems to love it more now than she was when she was young, because she can now clean up her messes herself and therefore be more adventurous...
