Dino/Dragon Dig ~ I got this kit at the Dollar Tree awhile back. Chris had to help Michael. That dino was well buried! You may be wondering why I have a dino for Dragon Day. Well, we believe in Creation Science and that dragons were the name for dinosaurs before people started using that word. More info in the links.
