No pictures to go along with this activity, I was too worried about where the mud may land!
After a few days of letting the nest sit, we revisited the site today as archaeologists. We mad a muddy mess and started to dig. We found all sorts of rocks (I called them treasures). Then we took the treasures and rinsed them off to see what we found. The rocks that we had painted earlier in the week we kept. Zane was soooo muddy that I rinsed him also, then proceeded to the tub. Here we scrubbed the eggs clean, and he had water fun also.
I found that the acrylic craft paint I used rubbed right off. So I am going to use the rocks for another project!
