We accidently had a Dinosaur themed weekend. Someone recently suggested ‘theme-ing’ your week with your kids (e.g under the water, at the Zoo, etc.). However, to be honest I thought it sounded a bit wanky and far too organised for me. Nonetheless, in this case it worked out well.
Last week a friend recommended Knebworth House and said it had a fantastic Dinosaur Trail. So, Saturday morning I decided that’s what we would do. I sat Madame on my lap and showed her all the pictures of the dinosaurs and the adventure playground. She was very excited, until I flipped to the opening times and realised it closed in September. Doh!
Quick change of plans, with a bit of gentle persuasion I convinced hubby, who is a London Commuter, to go to the Natural History Museum in London. It was brilliant! As it was a Saturday we drove in, no congestion charge on weekends, we have a diesel, parking was only a tenner and the museum is free! Madame’s highlight was the robotic T-Rex. She also liked these guys. They reminded me of @chickenruby and me.
She was fascinated by the blood around their mouths and reckoned they needed some baby wipes!
Then, today, thanks to @zooarcheologis, we went to the local museum where they had a Dinosaur Day. Madame made a miniature dinosaur and giant wellie boot dinosaur foot prints. I wasn’t there, so I’m hoping Claire jumps in and tells us how they’re made. I think they look fab, even though they do look a bit phallic (rotate footprint 90 degrees clockwise)????
All in all a great weekend!
