Fossil Hunting!


The Sweetpeas have loved exploring our dinosaur fossil hunt! We used our fine motor skills to pick up the digging tools and carefully dig the sand and soil to reveal the fossils!
We encouraged the Sweetpeas to use the dinosaurs to match the footprint on the fossils. The Sweetpeas were so vocal throughout this, using a range of sounds to mimic the noises of different dinosaurs!
This activity is such a great first introduction to dinosaurs and what fossils are! They loved to explore this with a range of sensory opportunities. Throughout this activity the Sweetpeas were sharing the digging materials with their peers and showing each other the dinosaurs which was brilliant to see!
Lots of love,
Everyone at Leighs xxx
