Bunnies, Snakes, and Dinosaurs…oh my? That’s right, the Indianapolis Public Library is bringing their Dinosaurs! show to a library near you, and it will not disappoint.
Hosted by Silly Safaris, the interactive program is engaging, silly, and educational. And best of all, FREE.
The Dinosaurs! Program is a hands-on show that allows children to get up close and personal with many animals including a fuzzy bunny rabbit, an owl, a hairy armadillo, a skunk, and even Wilson, the ball python.
Angi Cat, a facilitator with Silly Safaris, held the attention of her audience and constantly drew links between the modern day animals she showcased and their ancient ancestors the dinosaurs. Children could barely contain their excitement as “Pickles” the whip scorpion crawled across her hands. They squealed when Frank the frog came by to say hello, and they gasped as the hairy armadillo clawed excitedly against his cage.
The program is designed for children ages 3 to 6, but all are welcome. Kids stay engaged as they are allowed to touch each of the animals showcased in the program, and they are frequently recruited to volunteer and demonstrate. As always with library programs, the focus is on education, information, and fun. Dinosaur books were available for check out around the room.
If your child is an animal enthusiast, has a passion for dinosaurs, and if you are a fan of free family activities, be sure to check out your local library branch for a Dinosaurs! Program coming to you! Dates run through December and are offered at various times and days.
