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
