This Toolbox provides the opportunity to feel like a paleontologist while your child
studies a real dinosaur bone, excavates a model dinosaur, and makes their own fossil!
Dinosaur Puzzle no longer included, please see note below*
Dinosaur Fossil Excavation
The fossil excavation kit has many hidden Montessori activities! Your child won’t even know they are learning, but will develop concentration, patience, and care. They will practice fine motor skills by both hammering and chiseling away until they see the replica dinosaur bones. They will then carefully dust the bones and assemble their dinosaur. This will provide hours of fun and learning!
The fossil is a real fragment of dinosaur bone, which comes in a beautiful wooden box!
Make Your Own Fossil
With our Dino Dough Kit, kids can pour, mix, measure, stir, and mash! Your child will love being involved and making their own dough at home (only add water and oil). Then, they can create their own fossils using the plaster and 4 miniature dinosaurs (from Safari Ltd.) that are included. Our dough contains a natural dye & preservative so it should last for months of fun when kept in its container.
Dinosaurs and Critical Thinking
We are excited to partner with another great small business this month! Our Dinosaur Discovery Toolbox includes a set of 6 Crayon Rocks that are made from soy wax & natural mineral pigments that give a beautiful color. These non-toxic crayons have a very unique shape that promotes the tripod grasp needed for writing. They can use the crayons with the dinosaur rubbing plates.
We have also created a fantastic classification chart. Children will be able develop their critical thinking skills by sorting their dinosaur cards by shape and color. When they are done, they can hang the beautiful dinosaur poster that is on the reverse side.
*Please note that the wood puzzle was discontinued by the manufacturer and you will receive a set of Mini Dino Fossil Figures and a small puzzle set instead.
