We’ve recently tried the Dig & Display Fossil Kit from Learning Resources and its one of the best we have had!

Need a hand keeping the house in shape? Well why not get the kids involved, or at least keep them busy playing so you can whip round with the vacuum! It seems to be a constant battle in our house to keep on top of things, I’ll clean and then turn my back and it’s back to how it was.
