"Excavate a Dino" toy

Matt & Kristal brought back the coolest toy EVER for Syd & Rob


It's a chalk block with a little chisel & brush.

You slowly chip away at the chalk block, then brush away with the tiny brush

And slowly unearth the bones of a dinosaur.

The kids loved it. I wish I had like 50 of these suckers. The kids were meticulous (even my little "tank child" Rob) & spent TONS of time on it.

It took a while & made a BIG mess. Baths were needed to fully clean the dinos. And the children.

P.S. This is the closet that I could find here in the US

We got one at Fred Meyer last week. It was $4 and took over 20 min. to dig out and dust off...you find the bones and then have to put the dino together. I think it is in the garbage now. The end product wasn't super cool, but it was fun for the boys to find the bones.

Put it in a little container, fill it up and when it is starting to settle put a little toy in there! :)

Fun!
