Imagine the thrill of being on an expedition and unearthing a creature that has been buried for thousands of years. Not everyone can travel to far away places but our digs can give a child the feel of being on an expedition.
Do expect your child to take his/her time and become focused when involved in a dino dig. Paleontological digs are slow and tedious. Though our models are embedded in a softer mateial than rock, they still involve digging carefuly to excavate the parts that can be assembled. Be sure to put a piece of newspaper under the dig and expect it to be left out for a while; your child will most likely need several sittings to complete this project.
This is a very rewarding project for young archaeologists. It will keep your child occupied and concentrating for hours. It is interesting to discover that dinosaurs hatch from eggs just like birds.
When you put all of our digs together they make a great at-home display. I have seen schools give different kits to student teams in order to develop a small exhibit with the skeleton models.
