Sensory Saturday: Dinosaurs Love to Make Eggs
We have had a lot of fun this week preparing for Maddy’s 4th dinosaur birthday party. This prep was definitely the most entertaining out of all the dinosaur activities we have done so far. It is fun, easy, and the end result is going to be even better! I can’t wait to share with you how her party went next week.
For now, here are some baking soda dinosaur eggs we made for the kids to hatch at Maddy’s party. I found the recipe from here.
Here were all the materials we needed (though don’t be fooled by the little materials, it made a big mess!).
We mixed some baking soda and water with a few drops of green food coloring. We did three batches so the second batch was blue and the third was teal. Mixing was messy but also fast.
We had tiny rubber-like dinosaurs to cover with the egg material. They worked out really well because they were bendable if needed.
The eggs weren’t perfectly round but I think they will do the job.
I cannot wait to see how the kids respond to “hatching” the eggs with vinegar!
Speaking of vinegar and baking soda, how cool is this volcano (that will have baking soda in it, then “explode” after pouring vinegar inside) that we made out of Playdoh?
I am not the perfect crafter but Pinterest and a little girl who absolutely loves dinosaurs gives grand inspiration!
What experiments have you done with baking soda and vinegar? We would love to feature some ideas in another blog post!
Tune in next week for the last installment in the Dinosaurs Love to series.
