To make our magic dinosaur eggs we used the same material we have used to make magic treasure rocks in the past, so I knew it would make fantastic dinosaur eggs. Making these magical eggs was so fun and SO EASY, always a bonus for us busy mama's, right?

  • Baby dinosaurs 
  • Baking Soda
  • Water
  • Food coloring
  • Vinegar to make them hatch
Method

  • Add the desired amount of baking soda to a bowl.  Add a few drops of food coloring if color is desired.  Then, slowly add water and mix.  SLOWLY add more water until the mixture is damp and mold-able, but not too wet.

  • Place some of the dough in your hand, and then lay a dinosaur on top.  Cover the dinosaur with the mixture and form into an egg shape, securing the dinosaur inside

  • Once you have formed the 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 one day last week, so I set up a fun activity outside for Rosie.  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, and a spray bottle of vinegar
