Dinosaurs and Volcanoes added 1-7-00 Original Author Unknown

An edible ideas is to put a cup of chocolate pudding in a plastic bowl.  Place a sugar cone upside down in the middle of the pudding.  Dribble white icing that has been colored with red, yellow, or orange food coloring over the pointed end of the cone.  Bury gummy dinosaurs in the chocolate pudding.   We talked about volcanoes and how they often bury plant and/or animal life when they erupt. There you have it  -   the sugar cone is an erupting volcano.  These were a big hit with the kids and easy to do.

Cookie Paleontologist added 4-01-02 Submitted by: Kristi Mushat

Your children can act as paleontologists. Give each child on chocolate chip cookie, a hard one will work better. Also give each child a popscicle stick to scrape out the "bones", the chocolate chips, like if a paleontologist were scraping bones out of the dirt. They can eat the cookie when they are done.

Stego Sandwich added 6-01-02 Submitted by: Carmen Broussard

Mix peanut butter and pancake syrup together in a bowl.  Spread mixture onto two slices of sandwich bread. Cut the sandwich in half diagonally, which will give you two triangle shaped pieces.  Each student will need one triangle portion of the sandwich. Turn your sandwich with one point facing the top of your plate.  Add Doritos along the diagonal sides of the sandwich. (Place the chips in between the slices of bread) Cut a banana in half then again lengthwise to make the head/neck of the stegosaurus.  Position the banana the lower end of the diagonal sides.  Add one raisin for the eye. End result is a side view of a stegosaurus.
