From The Toy Box: Dinosaur Excavation Kit

my favorite things, toys, educational toys for children

How is your summer so far? Are you bored or have you found some interesting ways to pass your time. I sure hope I can squeeze in a few more activities before summer is over. I would love to learn how to play one of those 60s guitars, but I am not sure if mum can find an affordable music tutor nearby.

Anyway, it was another one of those lazy summer afternoons when mum unearthed this National Geographic Channel Dinosaur Excavation Kit so I can play with it. I’ve had it for a while now but have not found the time to play with it. I was also down with coughs and colds when we received it that mum kept it until I am well and free from the sniffles. The educational toy kit include this small grey block, a small brush, + a chisel. The goal is to dig into the small block until you find the remains of a dinosaur buried somewhere underneath.

Mum set up my chairs outside + unboxed this toy. I dug the afternoon away, searching for a sign of a dinosaur in between the dust and the rubble. With a little help from mum, I finally managed to dig up this cool seismosaurus from the block. Don’t you think he was cool? It was also an awesome idea to be a little adventurer for a day, searching for this buried treasure. I think dinosaurs are very awesome creatures + I also currently like the film, The Good Dinosaur, which we saw at the cinema a few months back. Mum downloaded a copy + I’ve watched it several times at home.

Google Doodle: Leap Year 2016

Look at how cute the Google Doodle is for today, 29th of February, or what most people call leap day or leap year. According to our lesson in school, the month of February usually only has 28 days but during leap year, an extra day was added, the 29th. This happens every 4 years according to mum. It would both be awesome + a bummer to celebrate your birthday on the 29th, don’t you think?

In this fun doodle, the bunnies with 28 and 1 in their bodies made way so bunny 29 can hop right in! Yes, it is one of those animated Google Doodle + I’ll suggest you check it out if you haven’t already, a great way to celebrate the leap day!  :Approve:
