What do you do when you have a great idea for a project with the kids, but you don't have all the items you need? You improvise, and that is exactly what I did. I wanted to make dinosaur eggs...we just didn't have any little plastic dinosaurs. Plastic ponies and unicorns to the rescue!
I must say that I did make sure to explain to the kids that unicorns and ponies do not come from eggs.
So what are dinosaur eggs and how do you make them? These dinosaur eggs are made of two simple ingredients that you likely have on hand, baking soda and water. Yes, it's surprisingly that simple. Now, if you have little plastic dinosaurs, unicorns, ponies, etc. you'll be all set.
Here's what you'll need to get started.
- Baking Soda
- Food coloring (if you'd like to make it any color other than white)
- Plastic dinosaurs (or any small plastic toy)
- A bowl
- A spoon or spatula
- Something to set the eggs on like wax paper or a cookie sheet
