How To Make Dinosaur Eggs

Dinosaur eggs are a fun idea for a kids birthday party! They are really easy to make, and kids love to dig their little hands into the dinosaur egg to find the hidden treasure inside! We have a few jr. palaeontologists here at The Dinoverse, so of course I had to make dinosaur eggs!

I used two different diy recipes to see which one would work the best for our dinosaur egg party. Both of them use coffee grounds, salt and flour, so easy ingredients to find! The second recipe calls for sand, so I used purple craft sand. Of course dinosaurs and other little fossil treasure ideas for the kids to dig out are needed. It was super fun making these diy dinosaur eggs!

If you are like me, you brewed your morning coffee and then instead of putting the grounds in the compost, you saved them. If you aren’t a coffee drinker, or don’t have a coffee drinker in the house, that’s ok! Brew the coffee a few hours before you want to get started so both the grounds and the coffee have a chance to cool down before you use them. Get out a baking tray and line it with parchment paper. Then, when it’s time to start, get your hands in there! Mix everything together! It’s quite a fun sensory experience. We used pink craft sand that I bought at the dollar store, and it gave our Dinosaur eggs a lovely pinky-purple color! No one really knows exactly what color Dinosaur eggs really were, right?

One recommendation; don’t add all the liquid at once. We found that recipe 1 with the sand was REALLY hard to work with when all the water was added. We ended up adding more salt, sand, flour and coffee grounds just to be able to cover our little dinos. Recipe 2, however, needed more coffee! It was quite dry; that could have been because my grounds were a couple days old, and quite dry.

Once it’s all mixed up, start forming your Dinosaur eggs! Put a little mix into your hand. Place your tiny dino treasure in the center, and then cover it with more mix. Form it a bit to make sure the dino is hidden well, and then place it on your baking tray.

Once all your Dinosaur eggs are made, you have 2 options. You can bake your dinosaur eggs in the oven at 200° , or just leave them out for about a week to dry. We baked ours for about 45 min in the oven. They came out firm and holding together nicely, but still fairly soft. We decided to let them sit a few days, to see if they would dry out some more.

Recipe #1: With the Sand
This one turned out much softer overall and so would be the one to go for if you are making them for younger kids or toddlers. Our preschool Jr Palaeontologist had an easy time cracking into this one, and the look of awe and surprise when she saw the plastic dinosaur in the middle was awesome! The dough for this recipe was much harder to work with, and the dinosaur eggs didn’t look much like a traditional egg shape, but is that really the most important thing when you have a chance to excavate your own dinosaur?

Recipe #2: With Coffee
This one was much more difficult to get into. After baking for 45 min, and then drying out on the counter for a week, our Jr Palaeontologists had to use metal instruments to get into them. Thank goodness our assistants had a chisel and hammer close by! The bright side of that is it was a much more realistic experience for the older kids. They got to chip away for a bit, rather than cracking the egg right away. It took a bit more effort, and therefore the DInosaur reward was that much more egg-citing for them! This recipe was much easier to work with when making the eggs too, and a bit more egg-looking. It would be a great one for an older kids birthday party, as long as you had enough supervision for the tools (or maybe didn’t let them dry for quite as long)

Overall, this was a really fun activity. All our Jr Palaeontologists had a great time, excavating their dinosaur treasure from the eggs. We will definitely be doing this for a Dinosaur birthday party in the future. I highly recommend you give it a try if you have anyone who loves dinosaurs in your world!

Dinosaur gif

A Dinosaur gif is a great way to add a little bit of fun into everyday communication. Dinosaur gifs are often the way my friends and I communicate. When talking about my kids running away from housework, a running dinosaur gif often shows up. Similarly, a roaring T-Rex gif usually makes it into that conversation! My husband likes the Jurassic World gif of Owen Grady and the Velocirators. Jurassic World gifs are abundant in our communications.

Dinosaur gifs are also a way to make your messages more interesting. I am a bit of a language nerd, and find myself fascinated by the way how we talk evolves. Dinosaur gifs are a big part of that. Did you know that gifs have been around since 1987, and that there were even “protogifs” that date back to the 19th century? They weren’t as interesting, of course. 19th century protogifs weren’t triceratops gifs. Scientists are even using dinosaur gifs to punctuate their thoughts, or other types of gifs to show examples of their work. Just like dinosaur memes, dinosaur gifs are now a part of everyday written communication.

Funny dinosaur gifs make a great way to lighten any message. How can you not laugh at the pole dancing dinosaur gif? Show your enthusiasm with a happy dinosaur gif or even say “I love you” with a kissing dinosaur gif. A simple “Hi” dinosaur gif will be sure to brighten anyone’s day. Dinosaur gifs and memes belong in almost every conversation.

What are your favourite dinosaur gifs? We would love to see them all! Tag us on Instagram, and don’t forget to sign up for our email newsletter to get the news, activities and general fun dinosaur stuff in your inbox! You’ll even get a discount to The Dinoverse shop!

Dinosaur Cookies

Dinosaur cookies may be the most yummy and fun way to enjoy dinosaurs! Dinosaur cookies are a great way to bring young palaeontologists into the kitchen with you. Kids love to bake along, and it’s a sneaky way to teach them math. Having them help weigh out ingredients like sugar in ounces and then having to add it to the bowl can stimulate those math skills! You can add food colour to the cookie dough to make them extra special, or add cute little sugar eyes. Sprinkles or other fun cookie decorations can be added to those dino cookies. If you are a really skilled cookie baker, you can even decorate your dinosaurs with some royal icing! I’m not the fanciest cook, so I just went with some food colour and these fun little eyes for my dinosaur cookies I found at my local Bulk Barn at Halloween. Here is Vester’s favourite recipe for dinosaur cookies; I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!

Vester the Velociraptor; Event Coordinator at The Dinoverse

Recipe:
Ingredients:
2¼ (281g) All-Purpose Flour
½ tsp Baking Powder
¼ tsp Salt
¾ cup (170g) Unsalted Butter, softened to room temperature
¾ cup (150g) Sugar
1 Egg, at room temperature (see my tip below on how to do this!)
2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
¼ – ½ tsp Almond Extract (optional, but it makes your cookies so good!)

Food colour, sprinkles, royal icing, sugar eyes – Whatever you want to make your dinosaur cookie dreams come true!

Instructions:
Combine your Flour, Baking Powder, and Salt in a bowl. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, cream your butter and sugar together until it is light, smooth and creamy. Make sure you scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to ensure that any extra bits don’t get missed!

Add in the egg, and Vanilla Extract (and Almond, if you’re using it), and beat until it’s well combined. This is a good time to add colour, if you are colouring the full batch. If you only want to add colour to parts of it, wait until after the flour mixture is added.

Don’t forget to scrape!

Add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing on low only until everything is mixed together. Your cookie dough will be soft. If it seems like your dinosaur cookie dough will be too soft to roll, you can add another tablespoon or two of flour, but it’s supposed to be really soft. If you are only colouring some of the dough, this is when you should divide it, and knead the colour in. Be aware, this method is messy!

Lightly dust 2 pieces of parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts, and place one on each piece of parchment. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll out to a ¼” thickness.

Lightly dust one of your sheets of cookie dough with flour and then cover with parchment. Place the second piece of cookie dough on top. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or up to 24; if you can wait that long! It’s important to chill your dinosaur cookie dough. It stops it from spreading in the oven. If you cook them right away like I did the first time (I was impatient and wanted cookies!), they spread out and they all stick together. My dinosaur cookies didn’t look much like dinosaurs. Don’t skip this step!

After you have been VERY PATIENT, and waited the full 2 hours (or more? Wow, you’re good!), it’s time to get baking your dinosaur cookies! Preheat the oven to 350°, and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper. Take your cookie dough out of the fridge, one at a time. Carefully run your hand under the top sheet if it is sticking a bit. Be careful; it can be delicate. This is where it starts getting fun! Get out those dinosaur cookie cutters, and go wild! Stegosaurus, T-Rex, triceratops…How many different dinosaurs will you make? If you want to add decorations that bake on (like my eyes) add them now. As you cut out your dinosaur shapes, you can re-roll the excess cookie dough to get more cookies. Use it all up, don’t waste it!

Place your dinosaurs on your cookie sheet, about 3″ apart and bake for 11-12 minutes, or until lightly browned. When you run out of cookies to bake, start cutting out the other sheet of cookie dough. It’s best to leave it in the fridge until you are ready to cut and bake it. If you can, it’s even better to place the cut out (and decorated) cookies in the fridge until they are ready to go in the oven. My cookie sheet just fits in my fridge, so while one is baking, I chill the next one.

Place your dinosaur cookies to cool on a wire rack for 5 min before removing them from the pan. They will be quite soft right out of the oven. Once they are fully cooled, it’s time to add any additional decorations! You can store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or in the fridge for up to 10. Honestly though, will they last that long? Mine never do!

Bonus tips:
To warm up your egg, place it in a bowl of warm (not hot) water for 5 min. It will warm up the egg to room temperature!

To soften your butter: You can remove your butter from the fridge in the morning and let it soften on the counter for a few hours. However, if you are a last minute type baker like I am, this won’t work for you. Instead, boil your kettle. While the kettle is boiling, cube your butter and place it on a small plate. Once the water has boiled, fill a glass or metal bowl that is large enough to cover the plate with the hot water and let it sit for a minute. Pour it out, dry the hot bowl, and put it upside down over the plate for 3-5 min. The heat from the bowl will soften your butter!

Happy Dinosaur Cookie Baking!

Dinosaur Board Games

Dinosaur board games can be great fun for the whole family! There are so many options now for dinosaur board games too. You can get great games for lots of players, or, if you or your kids are more solo players, there are dinosaur board games available that you can play on your own. A dinosaur board game can help to teach kids to work together, to learn about different species of dinosaur, and can create great family memories. Here are a few of the dinosaur board games that we at The Dinoverse have found exciting and fun to play!

Happy Little Dinosaurs:
This dinosaur board game is our number one pick. All players get a card, and then try to survive the disasters that come their way – meteors, tar pits, even really bad haircuts. Players get points depending on how well they dodged the disaster. First player to 50 points wins! This Dinosaur board game is great for kids 8+, and also really fun for adults, and the best part? You can buy all sorts of expansion packs to make it even better!

Draftosaurus:
Make you own Jurassic Park with this Dinosaur board game! Players try to make the best park by placing their dinosaur meeples in pens around their park. The play is to do it in a way to get the most visitors! But not all dinosaurs can go into any pen! It’s a super fast game that will only take about 15 minutes to play, so you can play several rounds before players get board (see what I did there?). Players 8+ will enjoy this game of strategy.

Dinosaur Island:
Imagine if you could build your own version of Jurassic Park! That is what players get to do in Dinosaur Island. This Dinosaur board game is great for kids and adults alike. Players get to run their own park, create dinosaurs, and (hopefully) build an amazing park! Just watch out that the dinosaurs don’t start to eat the visitors!

Dinosaur Tea Party:
This is a tea party, but with Dinosaurs! If you have ever played “Guess Who”, you will know how to play this game quickly. It’s a game of deduction; you will ask questions like, “Are you wearing a hat”, to try to figure out who you are having tea with. It’s lots of fun for both older players and young kids too!

Dino World:
The best part about playing a dinosaur is getting to eat things. With this fun dinosaur card game, that’s exactly what you get to do! Players flip cards one at a time, the large dinosaurs “eat” the small dinosaurs, and whomever has eaten the most dinosaurs when the cards run out, wins! It’s fun for young kids as there isn’t really any strategy involved, just lots of fun.

Of course we can not talk about dinosaur board games without mentioning dinosaur meeples. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Meeples, they are cute little figures that you can buy to add to your board games in place of the regular figures. Dinosaur Meeples are the best Meeples, cause it means ALL your board games are dinosaur board games. Now when you play Monopoly, instead of a top hat, it’s dinosaurs that land on Park Place! That is the best way to play any game, if you ask me!

Before I sign off, here are a few honourable mentions. These are great dinosaur board games too, we just haven’t had the chance to try these adventures! If you have, pop on to our instagram page and let us know! We would love to hear how you liked them so we can try them too!

Raptor: Great for older players and adults
Sos Dino: Perfect for younger kids, ages 5+
Fossilis: For the budding palaeontologists!
Tiny Epic Dinosaurs: A fun game for strategy players!

Clearly dinosaur board games are the best board games. Whether you have lots of players or a single player, a dinosaur board game can make your afternoon an exciting adventure! Kids and adults alike will enjoy a good game of anything you choose when it has dinosaurs in it! I hope you enjoyed our list, and if there is something you haven’t tried yet, I encourage you to check it out!

Fun Facts About Dinosaurs

Ever since the first Dinosaur fossils were discovered years ago, people have been fascinated by them. Both kids and adults alike are interested to learn all they can about these amazing creatures that lived millions of years ago. Thanks to palaeontologists, facts about dinosaurs are available to everyone! Here are some of our favourite fun facts about dinosaurs; this is just a little taste of all the information out there!

Sir Richard Owen, a Biologist from England, coined the name “Dinosaur”. It comes from the Greek words “deinos” meaning “big and terrible” and “sauros” meaning ”lizard” , even though dinosaurs are not actually lizards. The first recorded description of a dinosaur bone discovery was back 3500 years ago, in China. The people who discovered it didn’t know about dinosaurs though, so they thought the dinosaur teeth they found belonged to a dragon! In 1923, the first dinosaur eggs were found in the Gobi Desert by Roy Chapman Andrews, and in 2015, scientists discovered a new dinosaur species in Alberta, Canada. They named it “Hellboy” because of two facts: it has stubby horns above it’s eyes that looked like the comic book character and they also had a really hard time excavating it from the rock. After millions of years stuck in rock, of course it would be hard to get out! What a fun name! One of the most famous fossil hunters was Mary Anning. She found her first dinosaur fossil, an ichthyosaur skeleton, when she was only 12 years old! Even kids can be palaeontologists! She discovered many dinosaur related artefacts in her life, but unfortunately, back then because she was a woman, nobody took her seriously. Sometimes it wasn’t fun being a woman in the 1800’s. Now, there are many lady palaeontologists, like Blaire Van Valkenburgh and Louise Leakey, who get recognized for their hard work, and when they have discovered things millions of years old.

Some dinosaurs are really weird and fun looking. One dinosaur called the Pegomastax looks like a cross between a parrot and a porcupine. It has a beak with teeth that sharpened themselves against each other. Another weird dinosaur is the Suzhousaurus. This giant rat looking dinosaur had a furry body, and could be an ancestor of the giant ground sloth. These are the types of fun dinosaur facts I love!

Although dinosaurs went extinct millions of years ago, you can still have a dinosaur like pet! Many animals today are part of the dinosaur family! Lizards, turtles, snakes and crocodiles all come from the dinosaur family. Deinosuchus was a massive prehistoric crocodile that weighed about eight times as much as the crocodiles you see today, and had the strongest bite of all the dinosaurs. It was even stronger than the Tyrannosaurus rex! If you or your kids want an ancestor of a Theropod dinosaur, you can get yourself a bird! Fun Fact: You can then tell your friends that you have a type of Utahraptor as a pet!

Although dinosaurs went extinct millions of years ago, you can still have a dinosaur like pet! Many animals today are part of the dinosaur family! Lizards, turtles, snakes and crocodiles all come from the dinosaur family. Deinosuchus was a massive prehistoric crocodile that weighed about eight times as much as the crocodiles you see today, and had the strongest bite of all the dinosaurs. It was even stronger than the Tyrannosaurus rex! If you or your kids want an ancestor of a Theropod dinosaur, you can get yourself a bird! Fun Fact: You can then tell your friends that you have a type of Utahraptor as a pet!

Unfortunately, if you or your kids have a bird, you can’t tell your friends you have a Pterodactyl. The facts are true; Pterodactyls were not actually dinosaurs. These guys were flying reptiles that lived millions of years ago too. The difference is their hip-bones. Dinosaurs belong to two groups; Ornithischia and Saurischia. Saurischia dinosaurs were carnivores, with powerful jaws and tail, and short arms. The Saurischian dinosaurs were the carnivores, the meat-eating species, like Tyrannosaurus Rex, Allosaurus, and Argentinosaurus. The Ornithischian dinosaurs were more gentle, plant eaters. Dinosaurs like Triceratops, Iguanodon, and Stegosaurus have hip bones that point backward. There are over 700 different types of dinosaurs discovered so far, and I am sure we will find more!

There are so many fun facts about dinosaurs out there now because of the hard work that scientists do. Fun facts like, did you know that “Velociraptor” means “speedy thief”? If you or your kids have ever seen Jurassic World, you will understand how fitting that is! Also, the dinosaur with the longest teeth was the Tyrannosaurus Rex (8 inches!), and still to this day palaeontologists have never found a dinosaur bigger than a blue whale. In millions of years, the blue whale is still the biggest mammal ever! I love to learn about dinosaurs, and I hope you enjoyed learning these fun facts about dinosaurs too!

Inflatable Dinosaur

Inflatable dinosaurs make for great imagination builders. Inflatable dinosaur toys are also neat to collect.  An inflatable triceratops can be a fun friend to play with. There are also really cool inflatable dinosaur chairs. Of course you can’t forget about the classic Inflatable T-Rex costume. There are so many videos on YouTube of this inflatable dinosaur costume getting up to hilarious antics! A giant inflatable dinosaur would make a great conversation piece in any house!

Inflatable triceratops

Inflatable dinosaurs to play with come in many different forms. There is a giant inflatable T-Rex that stands 5’ tall! The inflatable dinosaur from Joyin is made from thick, high-quality material so it is incredibly durable. This giant inflatable is also waterproof. An inflatable dinosaur that would really impress any kid!

Giant inflatable T-Rex

Inflatable dinosaur chairs are really fun to sit on. Some inflatable dinosaur chairs come with soft, cozy covers, perfect for watching tv or reading a good book. An inflatable bouncy chair is great for toddlers to develop strength and balance. The inflatable bouncy dinosaur chair is just like the inflatable dinosaur hoppers that kids love.

Inflatable dinosaur costumes are hilarious! Of course the inflatable T-Rex costume has many followers on YouTube. The inflatable T-Rex even has calendars dedicated to him! Riding an inflatable dinosaur is a possibility too with one of the inflatable dinosaur costumes that have your legs become its legs. I find those pretty funny as well. An inflatable triceratops costume is another interesting way to dress up as your favorite dinosaur!
