Hatching Dinosaur Egg Craft

We made this fun craft during our Dinosaur-themed Preschool@Home this week!
I had a feeling LB(3) would love creating and opening a dinosaur egg and BOY was I right. :)

Here's how to make it!

  • Craft foam: white, green
  • Construction paper: purple
  • Cardstock or cardboard
  • Brad
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Marker

Prep Work:
  • With the white foam, cut out an egg shape. Then cut a zig-zag pattern down the middle, like a crack in the egg. 
  • With the green foam, cut out a bunch of circles for the spots on the egg.
  • With the purple construction paper, cut out a simple dinosaur-head shape. Doesn't have to be perfect, Just add an eye and a smile and your child will love it! :) 

How to Make It:
  • Give the dinosaur shape to your child and have them glue it on the paper.
  • Then place the egg on top of it so it covers the dinosaur up. Glue down one of the egg pieces.
  • With the other piece, place a brad on the corner of it so that it can slide the egg piece open to see the dinosaur!

Now you see me!

Now you don't!

I love this craft! I'm borrowing the idea for my Preschool Storytime at my library. Thanks for sharing!
