This weekend we went to see the BBC stage production of ‘Walking with Dinosaurs‘. It was totally fantastic! What would be termed ‘life size’ robotic models of dinosaurs on the stage, some wonderful plant and volcano effects, and an excellent ‘story teller’ (albeit in Swedish!) who steers away from the ‘fear factor’ and concentrates on the history of the dinosaur period, making it highly educational!
This, of course, has sparked off some dinosaur role play …
We are lucky enough to own some fabulous play dinosaurs, and play mats, but also have a tray full of stones, shells, conkers, pinecones and feathers collected over the years, which also come in useful for role play scenes.
Interestingly enough, of all the children most interested, it is Alfie – funny really, because he didn’t see the show!
