This is a great way to make HUGE, hatchable, papier-mâché dinosaur eggs. If you make a bunch of these eggs a few days in advance, they can be decorated at a party.
- One balloon for each dinosaur egg
- A lot of old newspaper and/or brown-bag paper
- Flour-water glue (instructions below)
- Paints (tempera works well) and markers
After the dinosaur egg is completely dry, decorate with paint or markers. Let the children know that no one knows what color the dinosaurs’ eggs were. Also, some dinosaurs dug nests out of sandy soil and some just laid their eggs on the ground. Maybe the eggs were camouflaged to blend in with twigs, sand, mud, or fallen leaves.

You can later “hatch” your egg and find a tiny dinosaur!
