Make A Dinosaur Egg

Uncovering your own dinosaur egg is great for kids activities. Marbling is one of those easy and fun homeschool activities which is ideal when you've got a group of kids to entertain.

You need:

  • Marbling inks
  • Hen's egg or plastic craft eggs

Just add a few drops of different colored marbling inks to water and dip in your egg. We used a homeschool hen's egg (with yolk and white blown out) for its extra life-like quality, but you can buy plastic eggs which marble up very well.

You can make a dinosaur nest by sticking down your freshly laid dinosaur egg and drawing a nest around it. As you can see, we added a mother Maiasura above in our homeschool dinosaur crafts - you might prefer a T-Rex!

Free Dinosaur Coloring Sheet

A lovely way to start is by coloring your own baby with this free dinosaur coloring sheet. Catherine drew it for you as part of our homeschool dinosaur activities.

To make this even nicer, you could make your baby hatch!

  • Draw two halves of an egg on white card stock and attach them together at the corners with a paper fastener so the halves open and close.
  • Stick your colored baby dinosaur on one half so that as you open the egg your baby appears!

You can find free templates for your hatching baby dinosaur on this fun crafts site.

Free Dinosaur Writing Worksheets

One of my children's favorite activities is to draw dinosaurs.

And even more to mix them up with other animals!
