[Editor's Note: Do your kids love to play in the mud? When they play in a sandbox, do they love to hide things and dig for them? Then you've got to make these adorable and fun "dinosaur eggs" that April of Gingerbread made and shared on her blog. I think this would be a hit with just about any child -- or adult! -Jenna]
In my household of boys there are a few things that are always a hit. They love cars, any building toys, water toys and dinosaurs. I remembered taking a trip to Legoland last summer and they had a dinosaur pit where the kids could dig for dinosaur eggs. The boys flipped out and had so much fun. I thought it would be a great activity if the kids could make and then crack open their own dinosaur eggs! They could pretend they were little archeologists.
You will need:
> Small Plastic Toys
> 1 1/4 cups dirt
> 1 1/4 cups of flour
> 3/4 cups salt
> 1/2 cup sand
> 1 Cup Water
Be sure to click-through to see how she put everything together!
