Party Recap

My Zachosaurus is obsessed with dinosaurs! Since he could talk he could say Pachycepholosaurus. ;-) So for his 4th birthday we had to have it at the NC Museum of Life & Science where they have a dinosaur trail and fossil dig site (aka my son's favorite place).

I bought plastic paleontologist hats and had the kids decorate them with foam stickers. The staff at the museum walked the kids through creating their very own fossil with plaster. I also had big buckets of sand with dinosaur skeleton fossils hiding inside, so they could all dig for their own dino and keep it as a party favor.

After the party was over, many of our friends walked the dinosaur trail and enjoyed the rest of the museum!
