Digging for Dinos

Give each child a paper cup half-filled with damp sand. Provide a variety of plastic dinosaurs. Let each child press the feet of a dino into the damp sand to show footprints. Now pour plaster of paris over each set of footprints. When the plaster is dry, peel off the paper cup. Bury the plaster discs in sand at your sensory table. Give each child a toothbrush and let him/her find and gently brush their fossils.
