A little advice I’ve learned from doing activities like these is to pick up a few containers from the dollar store so I can just toss them afterward and don’t have to deal with any mess. It might cost a few dollars, but it saves a lot of my time and makes my life a lot easier.

Lay your dinosaurs and reptiles into the grout mixture and pour the rest of the grout mixture into the container so that the toys are completely covered. Let this excavation activity harden for at least 24 hours or until it’s completely dry.
