How to Make a Dinosaur Egg

Save

Creating homemade dinosaur eggs allows children to get a bit dirty while learning hands on how dinosaurs are born. Once the eggs have been formed and hardened, they can be broken open to reveal a small dinosaur inside. This craft can be used by parents at home, or by teachers in a classroom setting.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 cups dirt
  • 2 cups sand
  • 1 1/2 cups salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • Mixing bowl
  • 1 cup water
  • Tiny toy dinosaurs
  • Newspaper
  • Hammer
  • Measure and pour 2 1/2 cups of dirt, 2 cups of sand, 1 1/2 cups of salt, and 2 1/2 cups flour in a mixing bowl. Stir until combined.

  • Pour 1 cup of water in the mixing bowl, stirring as you go. The mixture will be firm and pliable.

  • Take out a handful of dough and completely cover your tiny dinosaur with it. Try to make the dough an egg shape. Repeat until every student has an egg.

  • Set the dinosaur eggs on a sheet of newspaper. Wait for them to dry out. This can take up to four days according to the website Kinder Art.

  • Hide the dinosaur eggs in a sandbox and have the children hunt for them.

  • Break the dinosaur eggs open with a hammer after they have been found to reveal the dinosaur inside the egg.
