How to Make Dinosaur Eggs

Garrett had a friend over for a summer play date. We decided to make these dinosaur eggs we found when we were doing our Summer Bucket List Link Party. I found  how to make dinosaur eggs over at   The Kitchen is my Playground
With just a few ingredients from your pantry make these fun dinosaur eggs and send your kids on an excavation
2 c. sand
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. coffee grounds (leftover from brewing coffee in a coffee maker)
3/4 c. water + possibly 1/4 c. more
Mix Together all the ingredients and have the kids use there hands and mix it together till it forms a grainy play dough like feel. If you need to you can add in the 1/4 water till it is the right consistency
Flatten out the dough into your hand.
Then put in a small plastic dinosaur, I got a tube of 12 from Hobby Lobby.
Wrap the dough around covering the dino.
Bake in the oven at 250 degrees for about 30 minutes turning 1/2 way through. I made mine big so they actually took a little longer 
I got a plastic tub and buried them in the sand.
…stuck in some shovels, then called the boys to come and dig.
They all got to work finding eggs, each boy got to look for  4.
Once they found the eggs we took a hammer to crack them open which = brutal excavation.
They had a blast cracking these eggs open. Here comes the dinosaur.
Jackson found a pterodactyl .
This was such a great time, the boys loved it and it was really easy to do. Two of my friends are going to do this now with their preschool classes!
 What summer fun activity are you doing with your kids??
