Hatching Dinosaur Eggs recipe
We are huge fans of dinosaurs in my house. If you ask my boys what a certain dinosaur is they will tell you without missing a beat. Even my oldest son was a huge dinosaur fan growing up. This summer we’re even heading to a Dinosaur Safari in Boston. So I’m always looking for fun activities to bring so much fun to our home! From a dinosaur toilet paper roll craft to some Dinosaur Jokes for Kids, I’m always looking for the best dinosaur fun! Dinosaurs are such neat creatures that once roamed the earth. They’re an enigma that keeps even the most distractible little minds excited.
This fun activity is perfect for big and little dinosaur fans. It will keep them going the whole way through because you begin by making them and then having them add the vinegar to create the chemical reaction. Because of the chemical reaction that the egg shells create you’ll be able to create a fun and educational activity for kids of all ages.
This dino eggs recipe isn’t just education but super fun to make! This can become your own dinosaur dig kit. Although there are many different recipes for making dino eggs this one was the easiest because of the number of minimal ingredients. I also love how you can incorporate science because of what happens when you mix baking soda and vinegar.
This fun dinosaur activity will produce little plastic dinosaurs that will hatch from the magical reaction. The best thing about this fun project is that they will have some fun little dinosaur toys to play with after the initial fun has happened.

Add a small amount of the mixture to the palm of your hand and press the baby dinosaurs into it.
Top the dinosaur with more baking soda mixture, then squeeze the mixture together to form the perfect egg shape! Just a little bit of molding will go a long way!
