My Creative Space :: Mini Dinosaur Park

It’s amazing what you can do with an old tray, some plastic dinosaurs, a bit of chip-bark and cuttings from a tree.

Ta-dah… instant Dinosaur Park complete with water hole (a painted milo tin lid!)

Mr 3 has taken great delight this week playing with his dinosaur park which we built with our own hands. It gets him outside, encourages creative play and gives me 5 minutes of peace and quiet.

I wanted to create an activity for him that can be easily relocated if the weather turns nasty outside and as the dino park is in a tray it can be easily moved around the place without making a mess.

During our park outings he his has been on the lookout for new additions for his dino park which have included rocks, sand and flowers.

In all it’s been a big winner so far not only for the entertained factor but he is also learning about plants and animals without even realising it. What have you created this week?
