Dinosaur Discovery

(8 customer reviews)


The goal of Dinosaur Discovery is to show how many activities that are not “officially” Montessori can still use Montessori principles.

For example, children will practice fine motor skills by both hammering and chiseling. They can work on pouring and measuring by making their own dough at home.

  1. Amber

    This kit was so much fun and my daughter LOVED it. It is her favorite one so far.

  2. Marlene Bronson

    My son loves this toolbox! We’re getting so much engagement from the dinosaur matching cards. Thank you!

  3. Amanda

    This toolbox brought my whole family together around the kitchen table because, well, who doesn’t love dinosaurs? Charting the dinosaurs by name and card colour: my 8-year-old does similar exercises in school, and yet my 3-year-old was perfectly capable (and oh so proud!) of doing this. I especially appreciated how this box helped me to “find the Montessori” in everything.

    Montessori by Mom has done it again! The Dinosaur discovery kit is amazing! My boys LOVE the idea that they now own a real dinosaur bone fossil! They cherish it and treat it with respect and gentle hands! The dig that is included in the box helps with delayed gratification! There are so many ways to use the graph from using colors to patterning! The impressions are fun to make and I’ve since had to go and buy more plaster to do this activity over and over! The kit came with two molds and we found it to be so much fun that we are now grouping all of our impressions. It never ceases to amaze me how high of quality the kits are! I still have yet to learn to expect the quality of products and activities that are sent to us. Thank you again for everything! Montessori By Mom is simply wonderful!

    This being our first subscription box, I could not be more excited about it’s contents. My son is still young, but was able to participate in all of the activities provided (with a few minor age appropriate tweaks). The materials are high quality and creative! My son now looks forward to receiving his “school” box in the mail and has shown anyone who will listen that he has a REAL dinosaur fossil. This company and it’s products do not disappoint. So happy that I happened upon them.

    I cannot sing your praises enough. Not only was this box amazing and fun for my kids ages 2-9, but your customer service is outstanding. Our post office left our poor box in the rain and MbM was super speedy in getting me the new items that arrived damaged. We loved the dinosaur models so much, we bought a whole Toob! Thank you for the ideas and instructions, it really makes the boxes come alive.

    My girls (4 and 6) LOVED this kit! I had to remind my daughter that she could not sleep with the dinosaur fossil (she was that obsessed with it). MbM’s customer service is awesome. They are speedy to reply to emails. I had the pleasure of meeting them at a convention and they are so passionate about these QUALITY products. I was amazed at how extensive each kit was. The video resource is an awesome bonus. I get excited when we do this kit!

  8. Stephanie

    My son really loved this kit. He’s had more engagement with this toolbox than any others. My only negative is the quality of the wooden puzzle. It sheds splinters each time it’s used and is not safe in that respect. The pieces are very rigid and not smooth at all, so the puzzle is very difficult to pull apart after it’s been put together.
