One of the many joys of being a parent is getting to explore + experience new things through your child’s eyes. To be able to share in their joy + excitement is pure heaven! Today we have the oh so darling momma Alessandra from Italy, sharing one of her many adventures with her equally darling little man + friends at The Prehistoric Park that is located in the middle of the woods on the left side of the Adda river, close to Milan. If you area in this area or thinking of planning a trip with your family to this area this would be a great adventure to include on your trip!
As moms of of little boys we know how they can be obsessed over dinosaurs and prehistoric games. So when thinking of a fun activity to do with them, and while browsing the Internet, we found the perfect location for our next adventure: the Prehistoric Park, near Milan. It is located on the left side of the Adda river, and it is a true gem in the middle of a wood. Along its itinerary there are about 50 full scale recreations of prehistorical species.
We decided to go there during the week, to avoid the crowd, and totally take advantage of all the activities the park offered. We wanted for the kids to fully enjoyed our stay there and for it to be kind of a special trip that they can remember. And yes, let’s face it, we always look for an excuse to get creative!
The Park is quite big, so we decided to do half of it on the little green and yellow train, singing with the kids and pointing at all the dinosaurs along the “journey”. The bigger boys had a lot of fun guessing the names of the different species… We then stopped under the huge brontosaurus to have a picnic. We baked some prehistoric inspired: some funny dino cookies and we had chocolate muffins and organic juices.
While we chatted, the bigger kids ate and played tag, while the littlest just had fun on the grass and tried to climb up the dino!
Then we ended our visit of the Park walking and stopping by all of the dinosaurs, pretending to do their calls and playing with the kids.
We really loved and enjoyed the time spent at the Park and we hope it helped building some good memories for our kids.
