At the beginning of the program he allowed six families (we were one) to come up for a contest. We had to roar like a dinosaur & he had the sound guy pick a winner. We didn't win the contest, but all did win a small piece of fossilized dino dung. It looks like a nicely polished stone. I carried it around in my pocket all day.
More of the fossils he brought. There were some neat pieces of amber. He also had a fossilized teddy bear. It fossilized in a mere four months. As he said, it was all in the environmental situation not time that causes fossils.
My boys had a really good time. At least B did. I think a lot of it went over N's head & most of it went over J's head, but they were still pretty good throughout the talk. I was so thankful that Wendy put this together for us. It was great.
