Throwback Thursday: Archaeological Dig

Last fall, the girls had an archaeological dig with their friends.  

At first, we tried making our own pottery for the dig! 



The pottery bowls actually turned out really well! 





After letting them harden overnight in the freezer, we decided to paint them.  

 



Unfortunately, after painting, the pottery turned into a sloppy, mushy mess!

So, we decided to have a Terra Cotta planter painting party! 



 


 The girls were thrilled with their beautiful planters and were a little reluctant to break them! 




 We met up with friends with all their broken planters and had an archaeological dig!



The girls had a great time digging for their pieces, as well as finding a lot of other treasures! 

 


 They kept record of everything they discovered. 



Finally, they began to put back together their planters.  





Fun, fun times!
