My boys love Dinosaurs and they often watch Andy the Dinosaur and Dino Dan. My eldest son’s 5th birthday was coming up and when I asked what theme he wanted for his party he soon answered Dinosaurs. Having never booked an entertainer before, I decided to book ‘Wandering Dinosaurs’, as I thought it would be fun but also educational.
‘Wandering Dinosaurs’ is run by the lovely and enthusiastic Suzi. Suzi is a university trained education Officer with experience working in schools, zoos, and museums.
Suzi set up her table with replica dinosaur’s bones, fossils, teeth and even a dinosaur horn fossil. Kids are invited to hold them.
Each child receives a label with their Dinosaur names on. My two sons were Joshua-Saurus and Liam-Ceratops.
Suzi then explained a bit about what we know about dinosaurs today and what palaeontologists do and what they use to find fossils and dinosaurs bones. It was really interesting and even had the parents engaged.
She then invited the kids to do few games; a Dino-Egg and Spoon Race and Dinosaur Dancing game. The games were fun and challenging and the kids had the opportunity to run around and expend some energy.
To end the session she invited the kids to paint their very own fossils to take home with them after the party.
The session lasted about 1 hour. All the Dino-kids had a great time. Suzi is very talented and passionate. She engaged the kids and took them on a really fun Dinosaur adventure. The birthday child also receives a gift from ‘Wandering Dinosaurs’; this time was a Wooden 3D model kit that can be built and painted (a different gift is given at each party).
We chose to have the party at the Dinosaur Playground at Kingsway Regional Park but ‘Wandering Dinosaur’ can also run the Birthday Party sessions at home.
‘Wandering Dinosaurs’ is not only for Birthdays, they can also come to your community group, fete, function or schools and offer a range of curriculum-linked, age appropriate sessions for primary school students in Perth, Western Australia.
