Dinosaur Fossil Stamps
What kid doesn't love dinosaurs! These beautifully made stamps are enjoyable to play with in sand, in playdough or as a craft activity. The top side of the stamp is engraved with a dinosaur and the other side features the single layered laser engraved skeleton - thick enough to create a great impression!
Includes 10 roar-some dinosaur stamps. Approx. 5.5cm high and between 8.5-11.5cm wide. Made with 3mm sustainable plywood and come in a linen drawstring bag.
Every piece of wood used is slightly different in colour, texture and grain with naturally occurring imperfections seen in the timber (e.g knots, colour changes, etc). These pieces of timber are cut on an engraver and will have slight burnt marks on the edges on some sides. The best way to keep these raw timber resources hydrated and well-nourished is with a natural oil or wax, like beeswax polish.
Use at the play dough table or at the art area, encourage the child to make an artwork with the stamps, engage in conversation about what he/she is making, and discuss the dinosaurs, where they live, what they do, etc.
Art group activity, could extend on the sustainability and look for natural resources to play such as sand, dirt, or make your own paints by crushing rocks. Great for open discussions about Dinosaurs.
Take out to the sand pit with little brushes and bury them get the children to carefully dig for the stamps then use them to create a dino scene in the sand. Do your own fossil dig by burying them in the sand and using a brush to carefully uncover the fossil stamps.
