    There are a lot of "fossil dig" kits on the market with fossil replicas hidden inside, but we like this one because while it's inexpensive, kids are digging out five actual fossils, not replicas. Inside the box you'll find a 4 ¼" x 3 ½" x 2 ¼" block of gypsum sandplaster, a wooden chisel and a wood-handled brush. Aspiring paleontologists can methodically chip and brush away at the plaster to discover the fossils, which may include shark teeth, various shells, ammonites, crinoid stems and more, easily identifiable by matching to the pictures on the side of the box. When they're finished digging and cleaning up their specimens, they can display them, or add them to their rock and fossil collection! - Jess

    Go back in time and uncover relics from ancient cultures! Similar to the dig kits filled with dinosaur bones that your kids may already know and love, this dig kit will have children digging for ancient artifacts. Each kit comes with a minimum of a sandstone digging block, digging tools, and a booklet which talks about some facts of the culture in focus and gives an explanation of the artifacts. If your children prefer a little hands-on learning, these kits could be fun supplements to your history lessons. Note: some images and artifacts in the dig kits, such as a statue in the Discover Greece kit, are partially or fully nude. - Janine

    Just like a geologist, this kit has you going on a dig using the digging tool and brush for twelve different rocks inside the earthen block.

    Discover and build your own dinosaur skeleton with this excavation kit. With the digging tool and brush, skeleton pieces are revealed inside the earthen block like a paleontologist out on a dig would find. The pieces can then be assembled using modeling glue (not included in the kit) to build a full skeleton that can be painted and kept on display. Kit contains everything needed to excavate and build one dinosaur. Six possible dinosaur species; we cannot guarantee a particular dinosaur choice.

    This kit has a bit different take on digging for dinosaur fossils – you have to bury them first! Mix the plaster powders with water using the included spoon, position the plastic skeleton parts, and layer more of the plaster mix over the parts. Let the layers dry and then you can use the tools to break the pieces out of the plaster. Put on the safety glasses and use the chisel, hammer, and brush as you unearth the pieces. After washing the dust from your 10 skeletal pieces, assemble them to make your Tyrannosaurus Rex model. The tools are some of the sturdiest I have ever seen in dig kits and the model pieces are nice heavyweight plastic. The instruction book that is included offers written instruction as well as photos of each step of the process. Bury, Dig, Discover!
