At-home paleo lab

Scientists at work
Today we poured the molds for our  Dinoworks Tyrannasaurus Rex model. M (the 6 yr old) and D (the 4 yr old) worked very well together mixing water and compound, then sharing the mixture and filling their molds.
M made some nice suggestions, like using spoons to pour the compound into their molds, instead of holding the entire measuring cup like I had imagined. I was impressed that he thought of alternatives, and even more so, a preferred alternative!

After the molds are dry we will paint, glue and assemble. Stay tuned for results!
