Mosasaurs and More!

The ancient seas were filled with interesting and unusual creatures and mosasaurs certainly that. In fact, mosasaurs powered through the prehistoric oceans as the top predators of their time. Take a peek into the ancient deep!

Paleo Craft and Fact

Welcome to the CRAFTaceous Period! You can add a craft to any presentation to combine prehistoric science and art. BK Bones guides audiences in a simple paleo art activity while sharing fascinating facts. The activity will vary based on the age range and might include making finger puppets, fashioning a claw replica, or drawing a T-rex step by step. (Some crafts can be done even with large-group audiences wherever they are seated with no special setup needed and zero mess!) Audiences are engaged and love having a take-home product they created. BK Bones provides ready-to-go main materials, but will ask you to supply common craft supplies, such as glue, markers, or tape if needed. Ask about pricing. (Pricing is based on craft selected and number of attendees.) This element of the presentation always earns Five Stars from audiences!
