Materials

Mixing the Dough

  • Add the baking soda to the bowl.  Add several drops of food coloring if color is desired.  We used brown food coloring to make the eggs look realistic.  
  • Add water in small amounts and mix.  SLOWLY add more water and mix until the desired consistency is reached.  You want the mixture to be damp and mold-able but not too wet.

Making the Dinosaur Eggs
  • Place some of the dough in your hand, and then lay a mini dinosaur on top.  Cover the dinosaur with more of the baking soda mixture and then form it into an egg shape in your hands, tightly securing the dinosaur inside.

  • Once you have formed the desired amount of dinosaur eggs lay them on a baking sheet or similar to dry overnight.  The dough dries hard- the end result being perfect dinosaur eggs.

It was beautiful here yesterday, so I set up a fun activity outside with our eggs.  I gathered a few dinosaurs and created a small world of sorts.
I then armed Rosie with a few tools for exploring- a magnifying glass, sticks, rocks, and a spray bottle of vinegar.

She found a few creative ways to free the dinosaurs before using the vinegar.  She loved using the sticks to chisel into the eggs.  The sticks worked great for freeing dinosaurs!

Rosie then moved onto spraying the eggs with the vinegar to make them “magically hatch”.
