Heya.

Little Day Out is a curated list of fun things to do for kids in Sydney. We save you time by selecting just six weekend activities we think are the best of what's on

Sydney Festival, Pitt St - Jurassic Plastic, 9am - 5pm, Free

Sydney Festival, Pitt St - Jurassic Plastic, 9am - 5pm, Free

Dinosaur sculptures in beautiful landscapes made from discarded toys. Jurassic Plastic is art for both kids and grown-ups – a fun exercise in creativity and nostalgia, while contemplating mass consumerism. Japanese artist Hiroshi Fuji recycles and reinvents unwanted plastic toys into colourful ‘Toysaurus’ dinosaur sculptures and landscapes.

As a space where complex issues sit alongside simple joys, Fuji’s immersive installations are highly evocative: simultaneously dystopian, nostalgic and optimistic. But Jurassic Plastic is also a place to play – hands-on workshops will unlock your creative potential, where you can transform discarded plastic toys into your own new creations, drawing inspiration from the explosions of colour and patterns in the swamp of vibrant plastic and colourful sculptures.
