DIY Dinosaur Surprise Eggs

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 surprise egg treasure hunt!

The dinosaur phase is a part of every kid’s childhood. Most of us are now grown-ups and might have forgotten the golden days of our childhood. But, the memory of those days is still fresh in the minds of our kids. The best way to bring back their dream of the prehistoric age is to encourage them through dinosaur surprise eggs.


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’ for 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)
  • Oven
  • Hammer (for breaking the eggs open!)
