Dinosaur dig and expedition

Masiy came down stairs dressed like this:

She announced that she was going on an "espadishion" and needed protection.  She was going to dig up dinosaur bones like a paleontologist.  I gave her a bowl for her findings.  

She filled it with smallish rocks and some bark.  She came inside and washed and dried the rocks after her collection was complete.

We got out our dinosaur reference cards so we could do "research" to try to figure out what kind of dinosaur she had unearthed.

She picked out the rock that was to be the dino's head, so we looked at all the cards and picked the dinosaur that had the most similar shaped head to her dino skull (rock).  Then we filled in the rest of the rocks to make the body, legs, arms and tail.

Maisy LOVES tape.  So she decided the best way to keep these dino bones in place was to tape them down with translucent tape.

And that's how you go on an "espadishion" in your own front yard!
