With 40 objects likely found at an archaeological dig, Find It Dinosaurs makes planning a trip to a natural history museum more fun. All objects are listed on the top cap and the enclosed Ways to Play guide lists an assigned value for each item. The easiest to find earn one point while the elusive penny earns 20. Double-sided playing cards provide additional games for two or more players. For those knowledgeable about prehistoric animals, some of the hidden objects will be familiar, others likely not. Here’s a chance to impress those who don’t know a brachiosaurus from a barnacle with your knowledge.
Find It Dinosaurs provides hours of “purposeful play” as players search for objects you’d likely encounter at a dinosaur dig. Find It games are versatile “contained adventures” for one or more players who can decide to suspend play, then resume as time, opportunity, and interest permit. Players keep track of their finds and pick up where they left off when play resumes. This encourages spontaneous play, both alone and with others. Adults and children can play together, either working together to find all the objects or in friendly competition.
Find It both requires and improves concentration and focus. Focusing on the search for objects relieves stress by distracting players from whatever else might be going on. Keeping a favorite Find It handy can prove indispensable for preventing meltdowns and rebuilding after one. Find It also makes an ideal gift for a child or adolescent in hospital by providing distraction and inviting social interaction.
