Dinosaurize Me!

by - Wednesday, June 03, 2015

Last week, we were invited to the launch of Dinosaurize Me! at Plaza Singapura. 

We saw a life-sized Argentinosaurus, which measures approximately 37m long and 7.3m tall. This spans almost the whole of the level one atrium at Plaza Singapura and is three storeys tall. I'm sure your child will go 'Wow!' upon seeing it, just like Big J did.

Beside the Argentinosaurus. there is the smaller sized Giganotosaurus. Can you guess which is the herbivore and carnivore? 

Big J's favourite activity at the exhibition is the digging sand pit. Kids can play and dig around in the sand to uncover hidden dinosaur fossils. Do remember to bring along wet wipes and tissues to clean off the sand from your kids' hands and feet. The sand pit is free for all.

Apart from these, there are also other educational activities at the Dino Fun Zone.

1) Dinosaur Fossils Crafting
Kids learn how to create fossils using clay. First, they will mix a clay mixture, then pour the mixture into the mould and wait for it to dry and unmould it. There is a bit of waiting time, so do this activity first and you can do other activities while waiting for the fossil to dry.

2) Geological Timeline Activity
Learn how to construct a geological timeline while discovering the history of dinosaurs. This station involves a lot of cutting and pasting. 

3) Dino Stop Motion Animation
Learn how to use everyday materials to construct and re-create how dinosaurs went extinct, and form animations using your mobile phone. We did not try this activity and hence not able to provide much information about this.

Admission for each fun zone activity, Dinosaur Fossils Crafting / Geological Timeline Activity / Dino Stop Motion Animation, is priced at $5 per entry. 

If you are there on weekends, do stay tune for the Science Shows. Through this entertaining and enriching science show, children will learn about what dinosaurs eat, how to tell the age of dinosaurs and many other interesting facts of dinosaurs. Timing is 1:30pm, 4:30pm and 7:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays. This show is free for all.
