Hi all!  I'm doing my student teaching in a kindergarten class and we're just about to start our dinosaur theme.  My cooperant teacher wondered aloud about the possibility of turning the sand table into a fossil dig.  Since I had no plans for spring break, I broke out the salt dough:

I made a bunch of shapes and sizes to give a little variety.  The plan is to take all the sand toys out of the table and replace them with old paint brushes and sieve to "excavate" the bones.

I also have a small shoebox of real fossils let to me by my father in law.  Can't wait 'til monday!

Jamais sans mes ciseaux.

That is such a clever idea! I'm sure any kid would have fun digging these up and learning in the process. Great job Smiley.
