Dig it Up! Wild Animals
If you’re a nature-minded parent with kids who are fascinated by wildlife, then MindWare’s Dig it Up! Wild Animals is going to be right up your alley. A great way to introduce archaeology and zoology to curious, young minds. You will find twelve eggs hiding varying wild animals in the box. Children unearth the animals by digging them out, then they see and read about their animals in the excavation guide. Dig It Up! combines lots of great play elements into one product. Theres mystery, hands-on activity, and learning. The pods are large and well-disguised, which adds to a childs gleeful anticipation. The pod needs to soak in water for a couple minutes, to soften it. Once wet, children use a plastic tool to chip away at the pod in order to free their mystery animal figurine. Each pod has its own chiseling tool which means that conceivably 12 kids could excavate at the same time. Perfect for parties or small classroom settings. This is a great way to exercise fine motor skills and an excellent excuse to get messy! The pod material has a mud-like texture, so it gives the sensory impression of digging something up. We should note, because we know you’re thinking it, the clay cleans up easily.
