It seems that all boys (and some girls) go through a dinosaur phase. My eldest, Bastian was a dinosaur enthusiast and even built up to knowing all those dinosaur names, eras and facts and figures. He grew out of it BUT I think he’s still a dinosaur lover because he has this T-Rex backpack. Since Jael loves dinosaurs I’m always on the lookout for dinosaur activities. We have a few ideas to share so here goes.
When I found out that there was a dinosaur park that we could visit in Pampanga I think I was more thrilled than Jael! Dinosaurs Island Clark is definitely worth a trip. Aside from the huge park full of life sized dinosaurs, there’s a mini museum and a trail where you can ride a cart and get scared by dinos. At the time Jael was 3 years old so he was terrified but at the end of the day he enjoyed it so much!
If you want to bring your kids to Dinosaurs Island Clarkland there’s a great deal on Ensogo where tickets are 43% off!
Our trip to the Mind Museum was so much fun for Jael particularly the Dinosaur Exhibit. The exhibit has so much to explore but Jael particularly enjoyed the Fossil Dig where he got to play and pretend to dig up fossils.
If you don’t have a chance to visit Dinosaurs Island Clark or The Mind Museum just yet you can opt for some indoor activities, our favorite being reading! We’ve collected quite a few books and here are some favorites. Reading is a simple yet very beneficial activity for both child and parent.
Aside from them learning, you’re able to truly bond with them and make them feel important and comforted. Why important and comforted? For me being a work at home mom it’s hard to put limits to a child but they do understand when you don’t have time for them. When you take the time to do activities such as reading it lets them know they’re important and worth the time. They gain comfort in the thought that you’ve set aside time for them.
Jael has so many dinosaurs and when we took this picture I wondered where the rest were! There’s so much creativity in play and we love it when Jael plays with his dinosaurs and re-enacts scenes and creates scenarios.
When Jurassic World hit the theatres we were thrilled to watch a block screening. Jael asked for Jurassic World toys and we considered buying it for him. While we were at the toy store we considered options and Jael chose this dinosaur. It was a bit costly at Php1299 but we feel a worthy purchase. Honestly, we don’t buy toys throughout the year. Jael receives toys on Christmas only. If he should get toys it would be those from kiddie meals.
