Dinosaur egg hunt!

What a beautiful day to be in the garden – sunny blue skies and dinosaur eggs to be found!

While Master D was having lunch I snuck outside and carefully hid the dinosaur eggs around the garden. When Miss M arrived to play the kids excitedly ran into the garden searching for the eggs. First they found one near the dino mama ‘but that’s a rock’ one of them said before it was ‘cracked’ open and a dinosaur discovered!

The next eggs were found near mushrooms, gnomes and hiding behind a wooden stump seat. The eggs were easily cracked open (thankfully, since I’d forgotten about them for a while as they baked, oops). And then the kids happily played dinos, stopping in between for some afternoon tea dino biscuits. Ahhh, to be a kid again – bliss 🙂

And making the eggs was also fun and easy – I followed this tutorial from Sew Can Do :-). I must have looked quite bizarre stirring up my coffee grinds, sand and flour!

Thanks for reading, Kelly

    I’ve seen the coffee-grounds geodes, but we’ve never made them! So fun! We’re awfully fond of egg hunts around here. Maddie might like to create those eggs!
    Thanks for sharing your fun with us!
