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.
We 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!
How about you? Doing anything exciting or is it same old same old? I’d love to hear your ideas or activities!

Dinosaur Adventures is an exhibition coming to the Caulfield Racecourse in June and July. You can explore a prehistoric world full of life-size moving dinosaurs! Woo! I don’t know about you, but I have two small people who love dinosaurs, all thanks to Peppa Pig. They may be surprised when they see how big these dinosaurs are!!
As part of the experience, kids will be get their own expert digger outfit and be a paleontologist for the day! Also, there will be a whole lot of other dinosaur activities including dinosaur sand art, dinosaur library, fossil displays, dinosaur
