Is it 2016 and you’re still doing dinovember?
Is it 2016 and you’re still not doing dinovember?
Ok, point taken. So what is it, again?
A chance to tap into the creativity you haven’t accessed since childhood. Also, a chance to freak your kids out.
How does one do dinovember?
Here’s a quick how-to on Dinovember:
Step 1: November. Is it November? Yes.
Step 2: Dinosaurs.
Step 3: After your kids go to bed, release their toy dinosaurs from their pent up state and arrange them in some scene around the house.
Step 3a: Have fun with it.
Step 4: Keep your ear out for when your kids wake up and discover what the dinosaurs did last night.
Step 5: Repeat.
Do the kids know it’s you? They do, right? I mean, c’mon.
You know what’s amazing about kids? There’s no One Truth for a kid. This can be possible, and also, this other thing can be possible. Or this thing is probably possible, but that doesn’t mean this other thing is definitely not possible.
I won’t be the one to destroy that reality for my kids, not now, anyway. It’s a gift we’re born with, and I’m sorry you lost yours so soon.
Wow, this is genius. You started this? You should write a book!
It is, and I didn’t, and the people who did, did. When I heard that a mom and dad in Kansas City started this, I was immediately signed up. Here’s the picture book they got out of it.
So how can I follow this?
Follow the hashtag #dinovember at your nearest social media outlet. Or follow me on instagram, twitter or facebook.
You got me. I’ll share the love.
Thanks on behalf of plastic toy dinos everywhere.
