Thanksgiving weekend has long been a time for friends, family and good food, despite what the forces of capitalism would lead you to believe. The holiday may be on Thursday, but most people set the whole weekend aside to spend time with loved ones and do things together, even activities that don’t involve a mad rush to get a deep discounted television set.
So this Thanksgiving weekend, The Academy Of Natural Sciences of Drexel University is holding Dinosaur Days, a three-day celebration of all things dinosaurs and their closest living relatives, birds.
Filled with games, crafts and activities for everyone in your family, Dinosaur Days is free with museum admission and will be taking place the entire weekend. Just a partial list of the things you can do include:
- Play Dinosaur Detectives during this interactive stage show
- Learn all about turkeys with Academy experts during Dinosaur Dissection
- Fossil Forensics will let you touch and see real fossils
- Make your very own dinosaur-themed goodies during Dinosaur Crafts
- And of course, Story Time
In addition, you can also check out the special exhibit Chocolate: The Exhibition which is all about the greatness that is chocolate. Have a warm drink at the Hot Chocolate Bar presented by 12th Street Catering and get that warm and fuzzy feeling you only get during the holidays. Admission for Chocolate: The Exhibition is only $5 for nonmembers and $3 for Individual and Family members.
All the details and information can be found on the Academy’s website so make your plans now. Thanksgiving shouldn’t be about shopping, it should be all about family (and dinosaurs).
