Pictures of DD at the museum "working on" a replica dig site. Other kids would run up grab a tool smash it against the dig and then run away. If these pictures look good its because she sat there for 45 min pickings, scraping, brushing, and magnifying. She even was taught cool techniques by one of the (many) amazing volunteers. She truly loves science.
I stumbled across a video by Vicki Boutin showing how she made her "Gal Pal" LO. I loved all her techniques. They were as fun to do as watch. This is a fairly, direct copy, but I want to do it all again some time. It was so fun making my own design on the hearts and BG.
