I searched for the perfect DIY Dinosaur Eggs Recipe for ages before I decided to make my own!
I don't know about you, but my little preschoolers are dinosaur lovers. Everything needs to be dinosaur themed: dino eggs, dinosaur chicken nuggets, dinosaur fossils, and Jurassic park theme songs rule my life.
I knew I hit a winner with this really DOABLE dinosaur egg recipe...Dinosaur eggs filled with mini dinosaurs? What more could a kid possibly want? All these activities make for fun, hands on learning experiences with items you likely have around the house.

Recipe makes 9-10 dinosaur eggs with treasures inside.
You can really put any similar toy inside. I've put fairies, unicorns, gem stones and any small treasures I can find as long as they're safely tucked inside when baking. Always use adult supervision when using the oven!
Once I'd gotten the DIY dinosaur eggs just right, I made a little nest of twigs and branches in the yard and surrounded the nest with the parent dinosaurs.
Calling the kids to come outside, I urged them, "These dinosaurs need your help. Their eggs are about to hatch, but someone has stolen them and now they're all lost. Can you find all the dinosaurs, bring them back to their parents' nest, and help the eggs hatch to reveal what is inside?"
To break the eggs you can use anything: mallets, hammers, or even throw them on the ground. Remember to practice safe tool use (we used plastic tools) under parent supervision.
If your child is younger and having a harder time cracking the eggs, dunk them into a little bowl of water. As a result, they'll be a bit softer and easier to break.
There is something so satisfying about watching these baby dinosaurs emerge from the eggs! Truly, I can't stop watching.
