Paleontology for Kids

We visit the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History quite a bit, but rarely head outside to the giant sandbox – either because we don’t want to get messy, the weather is bad or it’s simply closed. Yesterday, Jenna asked specifically to go to the museum to “play in the sand.” The weather was gorgeous, so off we went … with Jenna wearing white pants. Oh well, we didn’t let that stop us. The great thing about this sandbox is that it’s set up as a pseudo archeological site where kids can recover dinosaur bones and other fossils. Jenna was pretty excited with she realized that she had “discovered” the giant dinosaur (shown in station 1 below). Pretty cool stuff.

Here are a few scenes from our visit to Dino Dig:
