Happy Halloween to those who celebrate it (let’s just pretend I posted this last night as planned)! I hope everyone had a fun and safe time. I used to go wild for Halloween but at this time in my life, that’s just not possible, but I get to live it through Isaiah which is equally as fun! This year he picked out the popular Australian TV show character, Bluey! As soon as he saw it, he didn’t want to be anything or anyone else.
I needed to be festive somehow so I threw something together quickly. I had some mouse ears that my sister let me borrow and a sac full of old cheer bows. I became the Breast Cancer Awareness Mouse!
Dinosaurs After Dark
If you and your family are looking for something different, exciting, and educational then you should check out Field Station: Dinosaurs, located in Leonia, New Jersey! It was the perfect place for my dinosaur-obsessed 3-year-old.
We immediately went off on a mysteriously lit trail to see which dinosaurs we would find. We did hear talks of a vicious T-Rex on the loose but thankfully we didn’t run into it. While Isaiah was mesmerized by the huge dinosaurs, Dwayne and I were trying to see who pronounced the name better lol.
After putting up with the fall chill for a while, we joined the crowd around the campfire for songs, games, and roasting marshmallows! How cool is that? I felt like I was a little kid at sleep-away camp. We also got to sip some delicious hot chocolate.
Before going home, we stopped to play a carnival-like ring toss game with dinosaurs! The goal was to get the ring onto one of the Triceratop’s horns or the Brachiosaurus’ long neck. Out of my four tries, I didn’t get anything but, of course, Dwayne got one on the horn and the neck! He won two mini dinosaurs and Isaiah got some stickers for fun.
You all know I had to come with pictures so I’ll include all of my favorite ones. I may or may not have forgotten some of the Dinosaur’s names but I bet If I ask my son, he’d know!
This was such a fun way to explore the prehistoric world. They have lots of other things to do like classes for the kids, shows, and even dinosaur bowling! Kids were encouraged to wear their costumes and go all out. It was a blast and I definitely recommend checking it out if you are local or something similar if you can.
Let’s pretend for a moment, if you see one of these dinosaurs pop out in real life, what are you doing? Also, did you dress up for Halloween? What was your favorite costume this year? Let me know in the comments below!
