Pinterest Party & Link-up (vol 7): Dinosaur Kits for Your Little Paleontologist

Welcome to the RoL Pinterest Party. Join me every 2nd and 4th Tuesday as we link up and share how we made, cooked, baked, crafted, did, or created one of the pins on our Pinterest boards.

Not on Pinterest? No problem. Link-up your own creation to inspire us so we can pin in to our own boards. It can be a recipe, sewing project, Catholic craft, homeschool project, organizing/ homemaking tip, themed birthday party, whatever you’d like.

Don’t have a post ready? The link-up will be open for a week so there’s still time. Plus, feel free to link up a new post or an older post that hasn’t had much traffic lately.

Don’t have a blog? No problem. Post your photo and a description on the RoL Facebook page. 🙂

This week I am sharing something I pinned to my “kids board” on Pinterest.

A couple weeks before school was over Andrew was learning about dinosaurs and fossils in science. He came home and implored Brian to go dig out in the backyard to look for fossils. Brian agreed and they filled their backpacks with hammers, shovels, canteens and such. They spent the afternoon digging and found some interesting rocks that Andrew believed had fossils in them.

A few days later I showed Andrew a photo my sister took of a dinosaur skeleton at the Museum of Natural Science in LA.

Andrew sighed and wearily said, “No wonder I couldn’t find any bones in the backyard. These guys found them already.” I told him not to give up and Brian gave me a look that said, “Yeah, next weekend you can dig with him all afternoon.” 😉

I felt bad for my little paleontologist and while browsing a local toy shop for a birthday gift for him I found this Kidz Lab T Rex Dino Dig Excavation Kit. There were a number of dinosaurs available but I got Andrew the T-Rex.

The kit comes with a block of clay-like substance and inside were numerous dinosaur bones that had to be chipped and dug out using the instruments included.

The kit is for ages 8 and up but Andrew was able to do it with the help of Brian. (Or as Brian may describe it, he was digging away while Andrew kept asking, “Are you done yet??”) 😉 They worked a little on it each evening and after all the pieces were found (and much rejoicing) Andrew was able to piece together the bones to form the T-Rex skeleton.

We were all impressed and will be buying one of the other models to excavate. 🙂

Now it’s your turn.

1. Choose your creation, share about it and snap a photo if you can.

2. In your post, link back the original blogger/idea, rather than your Pinterest pin. That way credit goes to the proper person. 🙂 (But feel free to add your Pinterest profile link so we can follow you!)

3. Add a link back here so others can play along. Here is the html code:

<a href=”″><img title=”Revolution of Love Blog – Pinterest Party &amp; Link-up” src=”×240.jpg” alt=”” width=”300″ height=”240″ /></a>

4. Link up below. Make sure you’re sending us to your actual post, and not to your general blog address.

You have a week to post your link, so if you can’t get things done by Tuesday, no worries, put it up when you can. We’ll be here. Have fun!

Lastly, you can follow me on Pinterest here: 🙂

    This is awesome! Edith is big into dinosaurs right now and wants a dinosaur themed party for her b-day. This gives me an idea…buying one of those wooden skeleton dinosaurs from a craft store and then burying it in a bucket of dirt so Edith can find the bones and put it together. Thanks for the idea!
