Dinovember!

We borrowed a really fun book from the library a few weeks ago.
"What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night: A Very Messy Adventure"

The authors also created Dinovember
and I thought it would be fun to do with the girls...
who were NOT into dinosaurs.

Our dinosaurs were busy at night,
but weren't too naughty. :)




The girls LOVED it!
They suddenly wanted to learn more about dinosaurs.
Mission accomplished!

We went to the Nature and Science museum 
and Clementine carried around
this T-rex for over an hour...like a baby.

I often struggle with keeping the magic of childhood alive.
I land on the side of "we don't lie to our kids".
But at the same time, it is so fun to pretend.
It always feels like a fine line to me, but I'm working on it!

This also confirmed that I could never do the Elf on the Shelf.
8 non-consecutive mornings of creating little scenes was plenty!

I hear you on not doing Elf on the Shelf! I know I would not have the energy for that. This is really cute though! Kelly
