MTH Study - Dinosaurs Before Dark - Dinosaur Egg Paleontology
Okay, the next craft for our Magic Tree House study of Dinosaurs at Dawn was making and excavating a dinosaur egg fossil. We used the Treasure Stone recipe at Family Fun to make our "eggs".
We followed the recipe, putting in one of our dinosaur figurines into the middle of the egg. They took several days to dry outside.
Then we started our excavation, using only authentic paleontologist tools.
Okay, maybe we were not so authentic. But we did discuss the paleontology information in our Magic Tree House Research Guide!
Our painstaking efforts were soon rewarded...
Another very fun and educational dinosaur craft! The girls also chose to make their baby dinos into necklaces.
Okay, not a totally original idea since we already made dino necklaces for R's valentines, but still, pretty cute, eh?
