activities for kids
The Mind Museum's Dino Play now open for a limited time only!9:40 AM
We started our visit with a quick walk around the perimeter of Dino Play. We were greeted by this cute baby dinosaur just outside the door. Leland was immediately drawn to it and wanted to play with it right away. It's good that even kids outside Dino Play can have their photos take with it..
We also got to read fun facts about dinos that were posted on outside walls of Dino Play.
After that quick tour, our Dino Play adventure officially began. Here you can see how small Leland is compared to the footprints of a Tyrannosaurus rex.
Dino Play is divided into four nests. We began with the first nest, Dino Dig. Launched last June 29, Dino Play encourages young dinosaur fans to experience and explore the world of dinosaurs. Everything that is inside the exhibit can be touched and played with. Leland had the perfect excuse to get dirty, haha!
There he is having a grand time digging around. He didn't even want us to help him find the dinosaur fossil he was looking for, not even his Papa. So while waiting for Leland to finish pretending to be a paleontologist, we read the Dino Dig Adult Guide. Each nest has an Adult Guide book so parents and teachers get to know supplementary information that they can use to further enhance their children's or students' learning experience.
From this nest, Leland Dinosaur ran all the way to the opposite nest which is the Dino Fun area. He quickly climbed to the top of the Dino Lookout Tower and peeked into the binoculars trying to spot a rogue dinosaur.
|His shirt also had a dino print on it. That's how addicted he is to dinos!|
|Nope, you can't take that home! LOL!|
|Wala sa bundok niyo niyan? My gosh, I know what to give this guy on Christmas! Hahaha!|
Leland had other plans, though. He didn't want to wear a costume and just wanted to take care of his dino eggs.
So the bigger dinosaurs had all the fun!
|Pretend play is a good parent-child bonding activity.|
We stayed for about two hours inside Dino Play before we headed outside to transfer to The Mind Museum. Leland Dinosaur said goodbye to his dino dabarkads and had his souvenir photo taken with his Papa, Mama, and baby dino friend.
And to complete the adventure, they "rode" the Sarao Motors jeep that will take them to their next exploration!
If you have a kid who's as fascinated in dinosaurs as our Leland Dinosaur, why not satisfy their curiosity (and yours) by scheduling a visit now. Dino Play will be on display until September 30, 2016 only as it aims to travel to cities and provinces around the country as part of The Mind Museym's mission to bring science closer to the general public.
