Dino week Contd…

Rainy Days are here to stay for the next few months so we are having more indoor days now. Indoor days = not so happy Aarya because he loves outdoors. **sigh**
The first post in the Dinosaur post can be found here.
I made Dino eggs inspired by a post at Projects for Preschoolers— pinned on my Dinosaur Pinterest Board! In the recipe she shared, they also use sand but as I had only mud, I used that and skipped the sand. The Dino eggs were a bit hard to break though but Aarya did not seem to mind.
So our recipe was –

  • 1 cups mud
  • 1 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cups salt
  • Water
  • Plastic Dinosaurs

Mix all the ingredients (except the Dinos) and add water slowly. Once you get a playdough consistency, cover your Dinos in it. Leave it to dry. It is raining here but ours were dry in 2 days, so if it is hot – it will dry pretty quickly.

I used the coconut shell, husks with it to give it a *earthy* feel. And added water to one shell as well. We need WATER always in our bins!

He worked really hard to get the baby dinosaurs out of there shells. Love his concentration in this picture.

Of course the baby Dinos all needed a bath right after they came out of the shells.

Later I gave him some shaving foam and water to clean ALL the dinosaurs because ALL of them were dirty. Triceratops is Aarya’s FAVORITE dinosaur in… like… forever. So he got his bath FIRST.

Can you tell he LOVED it? Sure you can πŸ™‚

Another day we tried this fantastic sensory bin with Baking Soda and Vinegar shared by 123 Homeschool 4 Me. I will share that in the next post.

  1. So cute! We have to try Dino Eggs – they are on my list for things to do this summer! They look SUPER fun. Also, I love triceratops the most, too. πŸ˜‰

    1. Triceratops rock! Dino Eggs were fun, even though the baby Dinos had to have a bath after wards πŸ™‚
      Thank you for your lovely comment, Asia.

  2. What a cool idea! That was a trip down memory lane for me. When my son was little, he was crazy about dinosaurs, but I never thought of making my own dino eggs. Fabulous!

I love to hear your thoughts!
