Create an Easy & Fun Archaeology Dig Site For Kids!

4 years ago

Perfect for a warm Spring day -- and lots of fun to boot -- try setting up an archaeology dig site for your kids! Captain, like many 5-year-old kids, loves dinosaurs and digging in the earth. She asked me to set up this dig site for her, and it was terrific fun.


I found all the pieces Mom!


I was surprised at how much time Captain took with this activity. We talked about fossils, relics, and what kinds dinosaurs could have walked the earth in our area millions of years ago. We are currently saving our money (Captain donated her Scooby Doo wallet full of coins :) ) for a trip next summer to a real archaeology dig in Utah. We can’t wait!

You can find some fun archaeology (Egyptian) worksheets and coloring sheets at Dinosaur coloring pages can be found at EducationalColoringPages, and dinosaur craft ideas and coloring pages can be found at DLTK’s crafts for kids.

I hope you have fun setting up and digging for bones with your kids. It is wonderful family time and exciting for imaginations!
