How about a dinosaur nesting site dig!

Because the 40" and 10" skeleton puzzles come with eggs they are ideal to use in a nesting site. Using several eggs place them in a circular pattern with the pointed ends facing inward. To hide them cover using sand, bird seed, or something similar. Have participants dig with spoons and paint brushes to uncover the eggs. Once uncovered open the egg and assemble the pieces by laying them directly on the skeleton picture. When assembled, draw around the skeleton depicting the animal’s skin, then add color using paint, markers or crayons. What colors to paint or draw? Since no one knows what color dinosaurs were when they were alive, use your imagination!
