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. :)
This is a fully interactive Dinosaur Craft and kids will LOVE IT!



And here are some super cute books to go along with this fun craft!

    





Supplies:

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!
