Every year Refe Tuma and his wife spend the month of November convincing their children their plastic dinosaurs come ot life while they sleep. Here are some of the highlights from this "Dinovember ".
"The dinos discover that they are actually prehistoric birds, and overreact."
"Last night, the dinosaurs attempted to prepare a midnight snack. Also, a ketchup keg-stand."
"Rex had found the perfect dress for the party."
"On movie night, the dinos explore family dynamics and paternity issues."
"This is why we can't have nice things."
And in response to the question: "How are you going to get that off your walls?"
"We just hid it behind a chair. See? "
"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... Childhood is fleeting, so let’s make sure it’s fun while it lasts. "
