Deep in the heart of Zilker Park lies a fun little area where your kiddos can be paleontologists for the day. And you can sit back and get the accolades for taking them to such a cool place…..what? Your kids don’t thank you for finding these cool spots either???
Regardless of the “thanking”, you must take your kids to the Dino Pit at the Austin Nature & Science Center.
Texas fossils are buried deep within the pit, just waiting to be unearthed.
You may bring some “official” tools, or just use the various plastic shovels, rakes, and brushes to discover the fun hidden under the sand.
It is a bit sunny, so make sure to bring plenty of sunscreen and water to fortify your hard-working paleontologists.
Your kids are going to have a blast – jump in there with them or sit back on the sidelines and take a breather – you deserve it!
We visited over Spring Break where a few day camps were visiting, but I image if you come right in the morning, while it is cooler, you may not see much of a crowd.
