DIYnosaur Family Fun Day!

Indulge your most creative side and create some truly bonkers wearable dinosaur sculpture. Taking inspiration from real dinosaur fossils, recycled cardboard, an injection of artistic licence and a strong dose of imagination, you will create your very own bespoke dinosaur mask! We will then parade through the museum as a herd (?!) of D.I.YNOSAURS!
