Every kid goes through a dinosaur phase and if yours is going through one, here’s how you can encourage this hobby through a really fun way… a dinosaur egg treasure hunt!
Grab your little archeologists and take them on a fun digging expedition that they’re surely going to love! ;)
These eggs are so realistic, they look like they’re really made of rocks! Imagine the surprise and glee in your kid’s eyes when they open one and see a hidden dinosaur inside… doesn’t it sound exciting?
You can also put all sorts of surprise items inside. You can turn this into a full-on excavation project and include little statues and ‘artifacts’ your kids to find in a plastic box or kiddie pool filled with sand!
This is a great alternative to an Easter egg hunt, don’t you think?
You’ll need these materials…
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup used coffee grounds
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1/4 cup sand
- 3/4 cup water
And these tools…
- Large mixing bowl
- Spoon or spatula (for mixing)
- Hammer (for breaking the eggs open!)
