When you have little boys you can’t hold off on the Dinosaur obsession for too long. There are cool television shows starring Dino’s, and lots (and lots) of awesome walking, roaring toys too. How about a cool ‘toy’ that can teach your kid about each period in history where these amazing animals?
Xander and I got to try out an awesome playmat / book called the “Giant Evolution Timeline – Playmat and activity guide” from Charlie’s Playhouse!
The book features a storybook style narrative of all the evolutionary headlines, lots (and lots) of awesome pictures, geologic boundaries (and names) of the 12 geologic periods, fun trivia, size comparisons and creature names with pronunciation guides. It spans 600 million years of evolution, and features 67 bizarre ancient creatures.
The “perfect” age for this cool activity book is 4 to 10 although babies and even teens can learn from it. My son began asking tons of questions about different dinosaurs and since one of his very favorite shows on television right now is the PBS show “The Dinosaur Train” I have something I can refer him to when he asks those questions!
Another similar product to check out at Charlie’s Playhouse is the 12 foot long Giant Evolution Timeline Poster. This is great for homeschooling!
We love science at our house and really love our new Timeline activity guide! I think your little scientists will also!
