CIY Staff Tips:

  • Experiment with placing other small, hidden treasures inside your eggs for endless surprises!


Step 1

Flatten out a section of clay big enough to fit a plastic dinosaur.

Step 2

Leaving a space to create a hollow center, fold the clay around the dinosaur and mold to create an egg shape. Repeat for additional eggs. Dry overnight.

Step 3

Over a disposable plate, use paint brush and paint to give the eggs some colour. Dry 1–2 hours.

Step 4

Trade the dino eggs with friends! Break open using the end of a paint brush to see what’s inside.
