I was planning to build a Dinosaur Park with Khwaish from long time back.Some of winter celebrations kept us engage plus some great snowy vacations.After getting time off from the above activity,back to the wish of making Dino Park.Initially I tried some of stationary shops in the hunt of small Dino model,to my disappointment they are actually EXTINCT creature,even little model too.
So I decided to use my chocolate mold of Dinosaurs to build our own models.At the same time read book DINOSAURS with khwaish to have little brush of knowledge plus adding fun element of watching ICE AGE Movie.
With the help of mold, using POP(plaster of Paris) as base material one day was dedicated for making of Dinosaur with interaction session on,could not click at the same time due to messy session.I managed to click Khwaish while taking out Dino from the mold.
Next session was dedicated towards colouring the Dinos.And you guessed it right ,first colour used by Khwaish was PINK(her favourite).We used some of mixed colour too ,mixing the colours was great fun altogether for Khwaish plus added experiments.
Our Dinosaur after colouring session…
Khwaish all set for giving little detail to Dino’s….eyes,nose,spikes.
Once we were ready with Dinosaur,we both set to create our park theme.To start our work used white chart paper and made lot of brush prints representing Dino’s Footmark.
little patches of blue,water bodies around…
Then some green patches…and black on some edges as lava flow,plus pink and red patches representing hot surface which is reason why Dino got extinct.
Usually we go for evening walk ,we got some stone in all sizes to create rocky mountains during one of the walk session.
Now time to put everything on board,we started with pasting some spare sticker of Dino from our book.I gave option to Khwaish to paint those rocky mountains in different colours,but she wanted to keep it natural and simple.So here we go ,placing mountains on our plain surface complimented by some green tree which I got when I was searching for Dino’s model.Added one little volcano on the corner…
Time to put main element in the park….. Dino’s .
Tadaaaa….here is our Dino Park.
We had great time in making Dino park,plus a good learning experience for me and Khwaish with lot of exploration .Please share your views and idea for Dino exploration process.
