Cool Creative Fun For Young Dino-lovers
Once in a while, do you ever find yourself wishing that you were still a child? I certainly do. Here in Perth there are so many unique kid-friendly events every weekend and school holiday that I'm sometimes horrified to discover the green-eyed monster rearing its ugly head. The stimulating and creative activities that are available to our children these days are often so brilliantly conceived that even the most rational of adults will sometimes shyly ask the facilitators if they can participate as well, or whether there is a strict age-limit. One such awesome activity that is coming up over the upcoming Easter holidays is the Arty April Neon Dinosaur creative workshop.

Taking place from 10am until 12 noon, from Tuesday April 7th until Friday April 10th, this very original creative workshop will be held at The Pod on Level 2 of the Claremont Quarter at 9 Bayview Terrace in Claremont. Suitable for children from five to twelve years of age, it involves painting a herd of pint-sized dinosaurs, preparing them for a playful and very colourful journey around the Claremont town site. Once the painting has been completed, these rainbow-coloured creatures will play 'hide and seek' with locals and shoppers alike, turning up at in the most unexpected of places – a novel idea which is sure to bring a smile to the faces of both young and old. If you happen to spot one, the organisers encourage you to take a selfie, with the hashtag #neondinos or #claremontlife.
In a nutshell, if you're looking for original, creative and affordable school holiday fun this April, this wonderful workshop may be the perfect way to while away a few hours. Children invariably love to paint, so whether you're the parent of a young dino-lover, a budding artist or the most hard-to-please toddler, Arty April's Neon Dinosaurs are sure to please. The fact that the workshops are totally free of charge is simply the icing on the cake. Finally, if like me, you're one of those grown-ups who don't believe that children should have all the fun, I'm sure the organisers wouldn't be adverse to a little parental help with the painting.
To learn more about the Arty April Neon Dinosaur creative workshop, take a look at the Claremont Quarter website. Although the workshops are totally free of charge, if you think your children would like to participate it's recommend that you register a place so as to avoid disappointment.
