Dinosaur Themed Preschool Activity: Archaeological Dinosaur Dig

In August, we studied dinosaurs and did so many fun projects that I haven't had a chance to write about them all yet. For this project, we took the dinosaur fossils we made to the park in our apartment complex and buried them in the sand, and then the boys got to dig through the sand to find them.


Preschool (or Tot-school) Activity: Dinosaur Fossil Dig

  • Dinosaur fossils, plastic dinosaurs, or even dog bones to dig up
  • An area of sand or dirt to dig in
  • Small shovels, rakes, and/or pails to dig with

  1. Hide the "fossils" in the sand.
  2. Have the child dig through the sand or dirt to find them. Tell them how many they are looking for, so they can count them and be sure to find them all.
