I have been waiting for the opportunity to let the Lil Divas excavate items out of ice and this seemed like the perfect time! Why not freeze our dino bones and let them do an Ice Age Dino Dig?! FUN!
What We Did:
I used the above dinosaur skulls and froze them in small dixie cups.
I froze a little water first then added the skulls and topped with more water so that they were mostly in between the ice blocks. I left some of the skulls on top and some near the bottom as well for a mix.
The Lil Divas used blunt kiddie knives to pick at the ice and warm water to melt it.
The Lil Divas were so excited to excavate the skulls. It was a fabulous activity.
Once all the dino skulls were out, we matched them up on the card that came in the toob and read about each skull.
Books We Read:
Have you done any fun ice excavations or dino activities with your kids lately? I'd love to hear about them.
