We have plenty of fuel to move forwards with...
In the afternoon we used some white air-drying clay to make some home-made fossils... either a head, or fottprints, or a tail... four children tried this out today in the short time between waking up from rest and naps and snack being served... three sets of footprints (3 different dinosaurs) and a head (the same as one of the footprints). My son has been kind enough to lend me his dinosaurs for the project... and they are being much appreciated by the children.
We also had time for some small-world dinosaur play - where the dinosaurs kept dying and turning into skeletons and then coming back to life again... some got buried in the sand, others received elaborate graves...
