Dinosaur Fossils

One of the ideas on our Summer Fun List was to do Dinosaur Fossils so after searching around I found this cool idea on Pinterest over at Summer Campground Director and my kids had such a blast doing it.  


Of course they loved putting all the ingredients together because it was messy it just makes it that much better.




After mixing up all the goodies we made up the eggs by making little patties and putting the dinosaur in the middle and packing them really good. 


After waiting 4 days it was finally time to crack them open and find their Dino prize.  




They had a great time doing this and most of the ingredients for the mix was either in my backyard or in my pantry.  You can get all the ingredients and the full tutorial over at Summer Camp Director.


So another check on the Summer Fun List and some happy boys.

My friend and I also made dino eggs for my son's birthday! I'll have to check out the recipe you used because ours never fully hardened and yours had WAY better coloring! So fun!

Hi, I was wondering if you happen to remember how many eggs this made? I'm making these for my son's birthday party so the kids have something constructive to do. I'd like three or four per kid and have about 15 kids coming. Just hoping you could shed some light on how much of the ingredients I'd be likely to need.

Thanks in advance!
