Our Dig Kit Experience
This kit comes with three tools to help excavate the dinosaur fossils. The cutting tool helps you cut into the clay dinosaur. The brush helps you to brush away the excess clay and dust. Finally, the magnifying glass will help you search for those hidden fossils.
The adults used the digging tools whilst the children used the brushes and magnifying glasses to search for the hidden dinosaur items in the clay.
Discovering the first two dinosaur fossils in the plaster was easy. The last fossil hid very well.
Soon we had all three dinosaur fossils in our possession.
Our Thoughts On The National Geographic Dino Fossil Dig Kit
This National Geographic dig kit took us about thirty minutes to complete. That was with an adults help so a child doing a dig on their own might take a little longer to complete. Everyone enjoyed this dig kit and we loved discovering the hidden dinosaur fossils.
This kit also comes with a full-color dinosaur learning guide. This gives you the chance to learn some amazing facts about dinosaurs and fossils. Also about the fossils included in this kit.
Digging out the dinosaur fossils does get a little messy but this is clearly explained in the digging instructions. We placed some paper down on our table to help protect its surface before we started digging.
