What? How are we, Education.com, only JUST NOW finding out about Dinovember?
We discovered this post on Medium.com about Dinovember (click through for clarification on what that is — we don’t want to spoil it!), and we instantly fell in love with the idea and the message it promotes: ”In a time when the answers to all the world’s questions are a web-search away, we want our kids to experience a little mystery…Childhood is fleeting, so let’s make sure it’s fun while it lasts.”
We know not all moms and dads have time to stage such elaborate productions for their kids, but if you do, we’d like to encourage you to try something similar with your kids. It doesn’t even have to be dinosaurs: Use something that’s symbolic of whatever they’re into, be it fairy princesses, construction vehicles, or 18th-century history. Refe is right: every kid deserves to wonder a little while longer.
