Dinosaurs & Fossils

Dinosaurs Frozen to be "excavated" by your little paleontologist 
Fill ice cube tray with a little baking soda, add water and a mini dino figurines and then freeze them

To "excavate" we used these 2 methods:

1.  Little bowls of vinegar to drop each dino into and watch them fizz out and melt (very exciting!) *Note: Use only 1 bowl for 1-2 dinos each time or the baking soda won't react to the vinegar over and over - so make sure to have several small bowls of vinegar handy or be ready to empty and refill 1 bowl with fresh vinegar

2.  Drop frozen dinos in the bath at bath time to watch them melt
