    Dinosaurs at Eastland Shopping Centre

    * This is a sponsored post.  I received an pass for my family to attend the preview of this event.  All opinions, words etc are my own. * 

    It’s school holidays here in Victoria, and that means there are activities everywhere, some free, some paid.  At Eastland Shopping Centre in Ringwood, the Dinosaurs have returned for some more adventures.  

    Eastland Dinosaur AdventuresWe were lucky enough to be able to attend the opening event last weekend, and the kids had a ball.  Ms 3 enthusiastically dressed up for a photo, dug seriously for fossils and has not stopped looking through her binoculars.  Mr 20 months enthusiastically dug into the morning tea, had a go at bashing fossils and has not stopped roaring at everyone since.

      There was even a guided tour around the centre, and the chance to have photos taken in a giant eggshell.  This event runs across the school holidays until October 12.  Check their website for specific times.  It’s free entry , $5 for the dino dig and from $12 for photo ops.  There are also various competitions running including a colouring comp and an instagram one, where you can upload your photos with the dinos and tag @eastlandshoppingcentre #dinosaursreturn – you could win a $200 eastland voucher!  How awesome would that be?  No, wait, don’t do that, it’ll reduce our chance!!!  Ha!
