Reminiscing here: About eight years ago, we wanted the kids to have "dino-mite" birthdays...so hubby and I made Quikcrete dinosaur bones! This was one of our more creative (and labor intensive) ideas. We buried the bones in our barn and the kids had to dig them up and assemble the dinosaur.
Most of the bones were around for many years, living in our sandbox. Awww, aren't they cute?!?

This was fun!
