Dinosaur Activities for Kids

We've got a date with some dinosaurs.

Scary stuff!

But luckily we've visited them before ...

... at the wonderful Natural History Museum ...

... and my terribly wise 4 year old will be there to remind me "they're not really real mummy" when they RAAAA ...WWR!,


But I do have a sneaky suspicion we might find foot prints, eggs, bones and more in the garden when we get back ;-)

If you're as dino-mad as we are, you'll love all these ideas for dinosaur fun ...
