If you are looking for a new project to try at home with your kiddos this is it! Over the past weeks I have been experimenting making dinosaur eggs for my son and his friends. I searched Pinterest and found a couple of neat ideas. I first wanted to make baking soda dino eggs and spray them with vinegar to watch them hatch. The kids had fun with this project so I decided to search for an even better way to make an egg. The search was over when I found this recipe! Your kids will LOVE it!


  • 1 cup Sand
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • ½ cup salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup of dirt or coffee grounds.


  1. Mix all dry ingredients together and then slowly add water mixing gently to make a dough like consistency. ( you may need to add more water if necessary).
  2. When your Dino dough is ready mold over plastic dinosaurs to make eggs. Then lay eggs on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper outside to dry (This takes up to 4 days).
  3. While the eggs are drying talk to your kids about how it takes time for eggs to hatch and how the dinosaur needs to grow inside. Make sure to turn your eggs daily so that all sides are completely dry.
  4. When eggs are completely dry use a small rock, stick, or hammer to slowly break the egg open. My son and his friends had a blast!
