    Say Hello To Your New Favourite Month: Dinovember

    Meet Refe Tuma, a writer, community manager and contributing editor at Paper Darts. He's also an amazing dad. Every November, he dedicates his time to his kids the best way possible: convincing them that their plastic dinosaurs come to life at night.

    It started with a simple tableau. One December morning, the family came down to breakfast to find the dinos had gotten into the cereal and made a mess.

    After some other kitchen antics, the friendly but mischievous 'saurs got into the fridge and a box of eggs.

    And then things escalated.

    And mum and dad got quite into things...

    And more creative.

    And a little dark.

    And why do they do this? Refe explains on his website:

    "...in the age of iPads and Netflix, we don't want our kids to lose their sense of wonder and imagination. In a time when the answers to all the world's questions are a web-search away, we want our kids to experience a little mystery. All it takes is some time and energy, creativity, and a few plastic dinosaurs.

    Childhood is fleeting, so let's make sure it's fun while it lasts."

    Well, Refe, we salute you! And if you want to join in with the fun, join them on Facebook.
