Edible Dinosaur Eggs
I came across this activity in an old craft book I found in our activities library at work. The book was old and the pages were yellowed with age like it hadn't been opened in years. I fliped to the dinosaur activities section and found this amazing edible activity! I was skeptical that the eggs would turn out like those pictured in the book, but they turned out even better. Hope you and your kids enjoy this activity as much as we did.
1. Boil water. Add the eggs and boil for 8 minutes.
2. Remove the eggs and allow them to cool completely.
3. After the eggs have cooled, begin to crack the shell by tapping it on the counter, or edge of a bowl. You want the shell to crack but not fall off. The more small cracks you create the more "authentic" the dinosaur egg will look.
4. Add water to a bowl, add food coloring. (I added 7 drops to this bowl) Mix the coloring in and place the egg in the bowl. Place the bowls in the refrigerator over night.
5. In the morning, or the next day peel the eggs and enjoy eating a delicious dinosaur egg!
