Archaeological Dig for Kids

Kids love to dig. Give them a place to put on the hat of an archaeologist and dream of finding a treasure.

the dig

Place a sheet or tarp on the ground. A baby pool goes on top. Pour in sand. Hide treasures.

dig tools

Place a bucket of tools- hand shovels, magnifying glasses and paint brushes near the dig site.

Don’t forget to surround the area with boxes and other props to add to the atmosphere of a dig.

This idea was used during the teaching of Dr. Jones and the Secret of the Lost Keys. It would also work well with Dr. Jones in a Foreign Land.
