The experience

Sit back and listen to the lovely story of ‘Tyrannosaurus Drip’, a fantastic rhyming adventure story written by Julia Donaldson and read by Rik.

Everyone knows that tyrannosauruses are big and scary, so when a placid duckbill dinosaur’s egg ends up in the wrong nest, confusion is sure to ensue! When the baby dinosaur hatches out, he’s so out of place that his grisly big sisters call him Tyrannosaurus Drip. Poor little Drip: all he wants is a quiet life munching on water weed!

Why not try some dinosaur stomp painting? All you will need is some paint, paper and toy dinosaurs (or any other plastic toy). Dip the dinosaur’s feet into paint and make some stomping marks on your paper.
