As promised on my instagram a few days ago, I am showing off a fun way to use that Jello Easter egg mold after Easter! Not only do I use the bottom of the mold to hold our different bathtub paint colors, we also used the mold to make dinosaur eggs! This is an especially good activity for a warm day!
My supplies- jello egg mold, toys for inside and water! I used a four pack of dinos and then put animal beads in the remaining two, but you could really use any kind of toys or beads!
Place your dinos in the bottom, snap it shut and then add your water! Place in the freezer until frozen (I usually do overnight). Run some warm water over the sides to thaw a tad so it’s easier to remove the eggs!
After thawing, I dumped them into a bin and out to the porch we went!
I decided to pour some water in to make it more interesting. After a few minutes Carter asked for even more water!
Trying to get the beads out!
I lifted the bin up onto his water table so it would be easier to play with.
Carter had fun with his dinosaur eggs and this is definitely an activity we will do again! I can even make a batch and keep them in a plastic baggy and have a dozen or more all together for an even bigger bunch of dino eggs! If you wanted bigger eggs you could also use a water balloon! I haven’t tried that one yet, but I think it would work!
Overall this activity was about 20-25 minutes of playtime and would have been more if I had let him keep playing in the water after!
Have you made dino eggs or done a similar ice activity before? What did you use?
