Journey Through Time

My 11 year old niece is a dinosaur fanatic. When I heard there was going to be a Paleofest for Kids at the Discovery Center and Burpee Museum, I asked if she wanted to go. What do you think the answer was??

First stop was the craft room where everyone was making
dinosaur puppets and hats. As you can see, she takes after
her Auntie... Hard at work crafting!


Cavemen created artwork, so she decided to try
her hand at prehistoric painting.


Yikes! That's one huge T-Rex!

Grr! Scary...

The Wooly Mammoth greets visitors at the door.


There were other activities we checked out:

Like the Space Place's microscope.
The legs of insects are quite interesting!

Magentic Gear Board -- Not as easy as it looks,
but we managed to get them working!

Bubble Station -- Every kid's goal is to encase
themselves in a bubble. She *almost* made it!

A new friend after putting all the
internal organs in place.

Museums are such fun these days! My kids got to see a bubble machine like that on holiday in The Netherlands last year, and had loads of fun.
