The Christmas tree is up, the son has posted his letter to Santa and I’m eating my way through my fourth batch of mince pies. Something about this time of year compels me to write tales of mystery and enchantment. The son reminds me every day how magical the world is so when the husband and I heard about the imagination revolution ’Dinovember’, we couldn’t resist joining in, particularly as the son has reached new heights in pranks at our expense.
Dinovember, started by a couple who wanted to spark the imaginations of their children, involves convincing your kids that their toy dinosaurs come to life.
We decided to use the son’s Captain America, mainly because the dinosaurs had travelled to the bottom of his toy box and neither one of us could face the minefield of jagged Lego bricks and diecast toy cars trying to find them.
First, Captain America took the son’s toothbrush
Then he dared to challenge Non-Denominational Christmas Penguin for the top spot on the tree
His antics progressed after the son put him on the Naughty Spot for his behaviour and he took the truck on a joy ride
He took time out to read whilst he hatched his next plans
Before long he was up to no good again
He did apologise though
We wish you all a Happy Captain Avember (our take on Dinovember) and hope you get to relive the marvels of childhood wonderment however you decide to hoodwink your kids.
