Keeping the Magic Alive

“Tell me one last thing,” said Harry. “Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?”

Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?

After a friend recently shared this link to Dinovember, written by fellow blogger, Refe Tuma:


I couldn’t help but share this fantastic bit of parent-creativity with the rest of the world…


Refe and his wife spend the entire month of November making their children’s dinosaurs come to life at night.  The Dinos seem to be rather destructive: writing on walls, breaking eggs, and holding other toys captive – but to the kids, this makes Dinovember far more realistic and incredible.

One of the closing lines of Refe’s post says this:

“Why do we do this?  Because in the age of iPads and Netflix, we don’t want our kids to lose their sense of wonder and imagination.”

What a great way to keep the magic alive!!
