Digging for Dinosaurs

Anna Clare's class is doing a unit on dinosaurs. Her teacher asked me if I would make the "Digging for Dinosaurs" treats for the class. This consisted of a clear plastic cup for each child with the following layered in them...crushed oreos, vanilla pudding with a plastic dinosaur "hidden" in the pudding, cool whip, and more crushed oreos. AC loves to help me in the kitchen, and we had lots of fun making them. I did not make one to try, but they looked really yummy! Steve was pretty disappointed that we forgot to make one for him too!

In the rush of getting them made, loaded in the car, and getting to school on time, I totally forgot to take a picture of the finished product! It occurred to me when I pulled up in the school parking lot, and I didn't have my camera with me! Oh well!

We LOVE Anna Clare's school and I love to help out when needed! I'm helping with her Valentine's party next month, so that should be fun too!

What a cute activity! I will have to remember this when we do our dinosaur unit. Where did you find the dinosaurs?

Thanks for helping! Beth Anne loved it! She told me that they excavated dinosaurs. I said "what" she said, "Excavated that means dig mom."

were there 8 plastic dino's left over for AC? She told me there might be.
