Two Dinosaur Excavating Activities!
Here are two fun dinosaur excavating activities that are super fun for kids! Great boredom busters and science activities all in one. I’m especially looking forward to ice excavating for the first time with Mac this summer!
Activity #1: Ice Excavating Dinosaurs
Ice excavating is one of our favorite summer activities. Click here to see how we’ve done it in the past with small toys and tools! This is such a fun activity to do with friends. Here is a fun dinosaur twist!
Step 1: Fill a balloon with water and a tiny dinosaur and then freeze!
Step 2: Use water droppers to slowly melt the ice or use small hand tools to create a “chisel” affect. See my whole post on the Little Passport website!
Activity #2: Dinosaur Surprise Soap
Step 1: Grate Ivory soap and form around a tiny dinosaur toy.
Step 2: Use a bit of water to really make it stick together.
Step 3: Let dry and watch the dinosaur slowly “hatch” during bath time! See my whole post on the Little Passport website!

I’ve done the ice excavation.. never tried the soap. Cool idea.

Both of these dinosaur activities sound like a lot of fun. My boys will enjoy doing these this summer. #HomeMattersParty
These are SO fun — my 3-year-old would go crazy for the second one!

What a great idea Brandy. When my son was small he was totally besotted with dinosaurs and would have loved something like this

Long ago and far away I did a dinosaur excavating party for my oldest son (now 23), but it was nowhere near as wonderful as this!

So many fun activities for the kids. Thanks for sharing at the Inspiration Spotlight party pinned & shared.
When my kids were young, their teacher led them on a “dinosaur egg” hunt. She told them it would have to be big. The successful conclusion led to a delicious watermelon!
