Children took part in the big dig workshop where they hunted through sand to find prehistoric creatures.

The youngsters learnt about fossils and were given the chance to make their own creations.

They also constructed a pterodactyl puppet to take home with them.

Visitors could also make dinosaur themed sand art pictures with Rainbow Sands, and have their faces painted for the occasion.
