How to Make Dinosaur Eggs

My mum sends Elise a copy of the Peppa Pig magazine from the UK every fortnight. It's a lovely magazine full of stories; phonics activities; spot the difference games; as well as a large helping of arty ideas for activities with toddlers.

I loved this idea that was in there a few weeks ago and pulled it out:

Elise is now learning about dinosaurs in her play school so I thought let's make some dinosaur eggs and take them in to show her friends. I combined this 'show and tell' with reading them a story, Meg's Eggs, all about dinosaur eggs hatching for the witch Meg and her friends Mog and Owl:

So we followed the instructions as per the Peppa Pig magazine and left the cracked eggs overnight in coloured water and this was the result:

But the real excitement happened when the eggs later 'hatched' in front of Elise and her friends during the story! They looked amazing:

I reckon the pink one is a T Rex egg...

Thanks Peppa Pig magazine!

Love and hugs
