Skeleton fun for little ones

Skeleton fun for little ones

Animal bones will be on show to pre-schoolers at the latest in the ever popular Nature Tots sessions organised by the University of Aberdeen Natural History Centre.

Super Skeletons is the name of Friday’s event (February 26) which is the first of four sessions of its kind taking place this year.

Sandra Bisset, Education Assistant at the Natural History Centre, said: “Super Skeletons is open to children between the ages of two and five years old.

“Our little visitors will get the chance to handle an elephant’s tooth and a crocodile skull.

“There will also be a model of a human skeleton for the children to see. We expect this will prove really popular as children like to see what their own bodies look like in the inside.

“The children will also take a walk through the museum to study some animal skeletons including the amazing body of a python and the flippers of a whale.”

Natural Tots events are free educational drop-in sessions.  Super Skeletons takes place on Friday between 10am and 12noon and then again between 1pm and 3pm.  There is no need to book.
