I know not many of you will know much about dinovember but I am loving it. Towards the back end of November last year I discovered it on someone else’s blog and have basically been looking forward to it ever since. Dinovember is all about bringing magic and mystery to your little ones without involving technology. So here goes!!
On the first morning my son and daughter came downstairs to discover that the dinosaurs in our house came to life over night and has pinched a box of their cereal!
My son thought it was brilliant, my daughter was shocked! I mean who would have thought the dinosaurs would have had the audacity to pinch her cereal. Didn’t stop her from eating their leftovers though. Day one was a total success and both children were looking forward to seeing what the dinosaurs got up to on day 2!
On day two we found the dinosaurs being good and learning about steam trains. My son is obsessed with steam trains and we are already on our second copy of this book as he loves it so much. He sat talking the dinosaurs through his book this morning as happy as Larry.
My daughter was not really that fussed today to be honest because there was no food for her to pinch! She is hopeful for tomorrow though.
Last night the dinosaurs decided to use their imagination and built a little hot tub complete with decorative palm trees. My son once again was so pleased to find them. My daughter was also quite interested now too. It’s so lovely to see them get excited about such a little thing that we have done for them.
My son is now at the stage where he is trying to guess what the dinosaurs will so over night. I thought it would be quite hard to think of 30 different things but so far so good. I am particularly pleased with how day 4 is going!
Day 4 has been funny. The naughty dinosaurs have pinched the halloween chocolates!! My son and daughter were not impressed that the dinosaurs have eaten their treats and have told the dinosaurs they need to be good tomorrow!
Today the dinosaurs were a bit more playful, they decided to take the Pirates hostage and take over the ship!
My son in particular liked this one as he burst into a rendition of Jake and the Neverland Pirates! My daughter joined in too, it was lovely to see them getting so excited about this.
The dinosaurs must have been watching my little ones doing lots of jigsaws as tonight they had a go too, and it was a good effort from all the dinosaurs. There were only a few pieces left by the time my monkeys got up!
My son has been trying to will the dinosaurs to play with the building blocks and tonight it looks like he got his wish!!! Those pesky dinosaurs were trying to pinch our comfy seat on the sofa! Good job we woke when we did otherwise we would be sat on the floor!
Last night it looks like the dinosaurs had the most fun they had ever had since they came to life!!!
As you can see they turned my kitchen into their home made zip wire playground. Once my son found the dinosaurs today he was so happy to continue playing with them and the zip wire! It was so cute. My daughter wasn’t that fussed today so I have a feeling the dinosaurs may do something nice for her tomorrow!
I was right!! Look what the dinosaurs did for my pink one!
Not long after my daughter got this tree house my son demolished it, which would have been fixed sooner had we kept the assembly instructions but we did not! So today my pink one is very happy that the dinosaurs have managed to fix it for her and they seem very happy playing with it!
Today the dinosaurs decided to teach themselves how to cook, and aside from the fact that they haven’t yet made it to the cooker they are doing ok I suppose!
So far we have loved dinovember! Can’t wait to see what the next 10 days bring!
Happy Dinovember x
