Jimmy had no concept of the size of a dinosaur, he knows them from books when he was 12, and through looking at dinosaur toys
so one of my goals was to get across how big they really were
Jimmy was really gentle – as always
and was allowed to feel various models, and bone structures.
This gave him a true idea of size
we then moved on to the education room where we was allowed to handle
Including bones, teeth, and DINOSAUR POO!
Jimmy feeling a meteorite
this took some explaining.
The History museum is a beautiful museum and jimmy was able
to feel many of the decorative details
The shop is always very important as it allows me to tie up and loose ends with information that we have learn’t – and link what we have been told to the appropriate toy/model
And also in this situation jimmy knows what he wants but is unable to remember the long dinosaur names!
so we spent a good 40 minutes trying to figure out what he wanted to buy!
but we got there in the end
1 stegosaurus jigsaw puzzle
1 stegosaurus toy
and one pachycephalosaurus toy
He also fell in love with this stegasaurus soft toy
but didnt have enough money
but luckily we found one on ebay when we got home
the end to a perfect day
On the train home at the end of the day
Surprisingly still awake and full of beans!
Happy hands and Happy face
