    We're not sure which is more fun; the dino dig activity, itself, or these cool tools Deb from Learn With Play at Home gave out for kids to use as they scoured the sandbox. 

    When it comes to dinosaur party games, it's hard to top the dino dig. Set up your own by burying toy bones, wrapped candy treats or a variety of trinkets in the sand, so kids can enjoy a little paleontology role-play. You could even have a few sandboxes placed around the yard and combine your dinosaur dig with a scavenger hunt game.
