The other afternoon…

K got into his dinasour excitment. He goes back in forth between the wild cats and the prehistoric animals… and even more so… the prehistoric wild cats! Anyway, in the past he has always asked that we find audio, online, to hear what certain wild cats (or any animal for that matter) sounds like. He intently listens and attempts to imitate to a “T”…

So the other afternoon he was determined that we find out what a certain dinasour sounds likes. I attempted to explain the entire dinasour-before-man-thing, and the fact that they were presently ‘extinct’ and this sparked an entirely new interest. He (in his 4.5 yr. old mind) did not realize that we would not come across a dinosaur one day. (Too cute.) So then we got into research, looking up various websites that had tons of pic’s about the theories behind extinction…

Along the way, we found this AMAZING site! BBC, has this entirely free, downloadable ‘game‘ that takes you into a 3-D world of dinosaurs! We have played nearly every day since, and he is just amazed at how he can manipulate through this amazing world. It is completely narrative to everything in the age of the dinosaurs you are seeing as well. It makes me dizzy at times, but it is quite fancinating!
