In & Outdoor $

Activity Overview

Young budding archaeologists are certain to enjoy this fun and exciting Frozen Dinosaur Egg activity. These Iced Over Dinosaur Eggs are super easy to make and are sure to gain the interest of all children who are interested in these Prehistoric creatures.

To turn this fun project into an even more fun activity, try using a squirt bottle with salt water inside of it and some chopsticks to remove the ice from the dinosaur baby inside of the egg. Make a whole bunch of these at any time of year and keep the little ones occupied for hours as they perform this ice excavating technique to uncover the treasures within the frozen eggs.
