We are a family with three 'wee winkles' exploring the pleasures and perils of educating at home using Scripture, Montessori and a lot of love!

Being paleontologists

A key part of any book on dinosaurs is fossils; bones and footprints waiting to be discovered so we decided to relive the experience at home.

In playdough....
We made footprints

And in ice....
I popped our little (cheap) dinosaurs into a container with water, froze it then popped some more on top and froze it again so they were in layers.
I gave the winkles a couple of nails and a wooden hammer. The sunshine was helping but they would have been there for ages....so they ended up using the metal paint roller as a hammer. It was great for chipping!
