BAD IDEAS FROM SMART PEOPLE

Parents Convince Children Dinosaurs Have Invaded Their Household For The Month



[View All on One Page]

I’m not sure whether to laugh or run away screaming. I know what I would do if I were the kids living in this house. Dinovember is the practice of one set of parents (or more) to set up elaborate scenarios each night in November involving plastic dinosaurs for their kids to find when they wake up. Apparently this is a tradition in their family now.

Refe Tuma writes:

Why do we do this? Because in the age of iPads and Netflix, we don’t want our kids to lose their sense of wonder and imagination. 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. All it takes is some time and energy, creativity, and a few plastic dinosaurs.

Ok, I guess that is pretty amazing. Even if I still see myself in the kids’ shoes. You can follow along the rest of this month on their Facebook page.

    The move while you’re asleep. When you’re awake they just watch…and plot their VENGENACE!

    Obviously I am too far gone in to the adult mindset. Especially for some of the ones I saw on the other site where I first heard about it, all I could think about was the mess and cleaning it up, lol.

    Mary Sue or whoever, the attempt to make the page more iPad friendly miserably failed. It won’t open anything.
