Before we headed to the dinosaur-themed activities, we stopped by Auntie Anne's table. They were letting kids roll out pretzel dough and attempt to shape it.

Then we headed to the game section they had set up.

For the games they tied kids' arms to their sides. This was to emulate the shortish arms dinosaurs have and make it a bit more challenging and fun.

Okay, allow me just a bit of a proud mama moment. This was a large dinosaur puppet type thing. The line to see it was long. The girls had no interest in standing in line to see a fake dinosaur.
But they spent several minutes at the display set up by the Natural History Museum with real dinosaur items.
There was a fun "dinosaur dig" set up.
And finally a scavenger hunt: each girl had a chart with dinosaurs to find. They were on pictures hidden in various spots around the mall. Sarah spotted them for us, but I thought it was a great activity for Natalie, having to match the picture and name of dinosaur on the wall with the name and picture on her chart.
All in all, a fun day and a great kickoff to the week.
