Which EXTINCTION theory 
do these kids believe in....?


This one believes the ASTEROID
is what did them in....



These two above swear it was the Ice Age...


Others... appreciate the enthusiasm...
But remain skeptic....  

Tectonic Plates 
and huge pressure valves...
Makes for a great show!



With time for some artwork...





This one below...
She may be secretly writing 
her own version and theories about this...


Thanks again everyone 
for such a wonderful time!

The Dance Party
at the end was a blast!

FIELD TRIPS RULE

The kids braved the heat for this December...
and the crowds for Christmas shopping...
for Build-A-Dino & Walking with Dinosaurs!




Smiles all the way...



And some love dinosaurs so much...
they picked up two...



And here we are waiting for the movie to start...



Wishing our families a 
Merry Christmas
and a Happy & Healthy
New Year!

Flying Reptiles

And we didn't mean picking up the lizards and throwing them around...

Brushing up on her 
flying reptiles before anyone arrives...


But first....
Celebrating the Month of December



by decorating ornaments...


Then talking about some wings and hollow bones...


with a few demonstrations on how
a Quetzalcoatlus flew...


and the proof was in the tracks...they walked on all fours!

Now to see what these kids can do...




Although the size of some of these flying reptiles
were bigger than the clubhouse...

The kids were still able to
keep up with their prehistoric art...



Would you like to see how some came out?


Ta-Dah!


They were all....


SPECTACULAR!




In a couple of weeks...
Our field trip to see...



Made the same "eye" on an ornament...

Thank you everyone...
We LOVE you!

DINO-MITE FRIENDS
caught on camera!

Why are they called
MARINE REPTILES?

There were a few great suggestions on "why"....
1.  Marine Reptiles are fish...
"No"
2.  They have scales...
"I don't believe so..."
3.  They breathe underwater....
"No, No, No...."

And to find out....
Marine Reptiles evolved from Land Creatures...
"Ta Dah!"

These kids really know a lot about 
the prehistoric times....

It's always fun to teach them something new!


From learning about Cryptoclidus fins...
and how they swallowed rocks just to stay down...


And the Plesiosaurs fossil that
had bones of an embryo in the tummy....


Making our Marine Reptile Habitats!


And watch out for Liopleurodon...


That ones a SHARK eater!


Here's one trying to escape now!


Here's a "Behind the Scene" photo...
 getting ready before the other 
Dino Members come.


And we also gave tribute to
Mary Anning
"A Great Fossil Hunter"
Original inspiration for a famous tongue twister -
"She sells sea shells by the seashore."

Here's the link below for a great history...

And get ready for our field trip next month!



We're hitting the movies....
followed by Build - A - Dino...

It's going to be AWESOME!
