If you've been reading my blog, you'll know that Princess Nagger is into dinosaurs. Big time. She wants to be a Paleontologist when she grows up. I secretly hope she continues to think along those lines - then when hubby and I get old
The wonderful Jenners (who is taking a bloggy break to spend quality time with her mom - HUGZ Jenners!) alerted me to the fact that there are these really cool things for kids that love dinosaurs... The "I Dig Dinosaurs" kits that they can spend hours of enjoyment pretending to be a Paleontologist and dig out dinosaur bones from a block of something. They can then put the skeleton form together and paint it and have a wonderful keepsake.
Since they didn't happen to have either of Princess Naggers two favorites, the Pteranodon or the Pterodactyl, I bought her third favorite, the Velociraptor:
Jenners, for helping me achieve that title. I owe you one.
She wanted to start digging immediately, so she got all ready for her big dig:
After school on Monday she protested about having to do her homework first, but once she was done, she got to work digging out the rest of the skeleton. She commented: "It's not really hours of fun, but days of fun...like two days." And only because it got too late (and dark) to finish it in one day.
Once she had all the bones dug out, she recruited me to put the skeleton together - some of the pieces were stubborn and kept slipping apart, so I glued a few together just to keep it sturdy for her paint job:
