CHILDREN'S THEMED MINI DIG PARTIES




Combine an exciting mini dig with different party themes.  The children can dig for treasure, gems, gold coins, dinosaurs and fossils as well as a few unidentified bones (be them pirate, dinosaur or a long lost adventurer).

Each session can include fun party games and a themed obstacle course (if room).

YOUNG ARCHAEOLOGISTS' PARTY - Age range 5 to 12 yrs.

Children can excavate a mini-dig tray from various time periods (see link to Archaeology Mini Digs and Topic Specific Mini Digs for more info). Using real archaeological tools children can excavate prehistoric fossils and flint tools, Egyptian, Roman, Viking, Tudor, Medieval and Victorian/WW2/Modern artefacts. 


Louise will help the children to fill in a "Finds Sheet" and ask the children to help identify the artefacts.  The children can then put their artefacts into a historical timeline.

Various pre-historic and historic plaster cast models (fossils, dinosaurs, mummies etc.) make great take home gifts.
