There will be all sorts of dynamic dino materials on hand for you to create artwork or build a play space together.

Explore a different idea and activity each time you visit; make a dinosaur sculpture out of cushions or felt; then turn it into a fabulous home for your fossils. Draw your favourite dinosaur’s food or wrap and weave a nest for them using ribbon and rope. Come face-to-face with a Tarbosaurus and meet a baby Triceratops and learn all about their lives. Listen to music and cast dinosaur shadows as you play or have a prehistoric tea party. Anything is possible!
