Discovery Science Toys - Dig and Discover

Dig and discover is an awesome range of kits from Kristal Educational teaching archaeology, palaeontology, or geology through a discovery science toy. There are 26 kits featured on Amazon covering a great range of topics including the Civil War, Dinosaurs, Ancient Civilizations such as the Egyptians, Romans and Mayans as well as crystals, coins, treasure and many more areas of interest!

In the ancient coins dig and discover kit you get to excavate a collection of 13 'ancient coins' cast from authentic finds, they are embedded in a 9" x 6" frame. You use the excavation tool and brush provided to uncover the replicas which have been copied from actual archaeological finds. There is 5,000 year-old Sumerian shell money as well as Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Persian and Chinese coins. Once unearthed, you can then restore, paint and display the finds. Each of the kits comes with everything you need: excavation blocks, brushes, digging tool, paint tablets and a relevant booklet of information and instructions. In the ancient coins kit the booklet is called, 'How to become an Archaeologist'.

These kits teach patience and perseverance as both are required to excavate the finds and then restore them for display. Sure, the excavation process itself is a little messy but if you set up a project area with newspaper it will not be too hard to clear up after, alternatively outdoors is always an option.
