Location:    Simar Nature Reserve

Due to the roaring success of our first Dinosaur Day at Simar, we are excited to announce a second date!

Our first day was a day full of dinosaurs, smiles, learning and of course NATURE! Lots of happy children and parents, spending time outdoors, under the trees of our Simar Nature Reserve. And to top it all up, we got to introduce the families to some amazing birds that were visiting the reserve that day!

So if you missed out on our first day, you can book for our second day, this coming Saturday 3rd August! Book as soon as possible as places are limited!

Dinosaurs are fascinating creatures. So different from anything that we have on earth at the moment….but are they? Every year we welcome the dinosaur’s ancestors back into our reserves. That’s right! Birds are modern dinosaurs! Come down and explore the connections between birds and dinosaurs through our fun crafts and activities!

During this event we will celebrate the connection that birds can give us with prehistoric times. We will measure out some of the dinosaurs that walked the earth. And we’ll try and imagine them in our world today. We will hunt for fossils in our ancient forest. This will be followed by some crafts and finally, we will explore the reserve and our birdwatching hides in search of our summer bird residents.

Crafts and activities include:

  • Bird or dinosaur skeleton trail
  • How big were the dinosaurs?
  • Making cardboard dinosaurs to explore the reserve
  • Birdwatching

This is a family event for children aged 4-8. The price of the event will be €3 per child, and this is to be paid upon arrival at the reserve. To book your child for this event click here.

We invite you to join us at our Simar Nature Reserve for a fun-filled morning of activities and crafts! Learn about dinosaurs, learn about birds and enjoy the great outdoors, under the trees of our Xemxija reserve.

So come along for a STOMP and a ROAR and try and find some DINOSAURS!
