2nd May 2024

Many children would love to jump in a time machine and go back in time to when dinosaurs roamed the earth and see them in all their epicness! Long gone, we rely on books and pictures to get up close and personal with these fantastic beasts. Luckily, we have the perfect resources for blind and visually impaired children to experience the jaw-dropping history of dinosaurs. Take a trip in our very own Living Paintings time machine and explore the Jurassic, Triassic and Cretaceous periods through touch and sound.

Leap into an exciting journey with our Dinosaurs ROAR! series, perfect for blind and visually impaired dinosaur enthusiasts to learn all about prehistoric creatures.

Young learners can come face to face with their favourite dinosaurs through touch and sound – including the Triceratops, Protoceratops, and of course the epic T-Rex. Our feely pictures provide a closer look at dinosaur skeletons, claws, nests and more – all accompanied by atmospheric music and sound effects to enhance the sensory experience for blind children and young people.

Alongside our sensory experiences, each pack is full of accessible dino-inspired activities – guaranteed to be a roaring success with young learners at home or school.

Our Dinosaurs ROAR! series is designed children and young people at Key Stage 2 and 3 – but are suitable for anybody wanting to learn more about these fantastic beasts that once roamed the earth!
