Mini Creations – hatching a dinosaur…

We are delighted to be hosting Mini Creations for a spell. If you linked up to KidGLloves to share your children’s crafting creativity, or you are new to Mini Creations and just want to share some amazing things that your kids have produced this week. This is the perfect link up for that.

Kids does your Mum complain if you bring amazing art work home you made at nursery or school? Does your Dad put on a fake smile at the rocket ship with extra engines cleverly made out of loo roll? Do they roll their eyes at the spectacular playground you made from a cereal box? Have they run out of space on the fridge for your artwork? Then here is the linky for them…We are also happy to see crafting ideas your parents might want to share, reviews of things children and parents might love to help them get more creative or even recipes. Go wild, let loose and share. 

This week, Matthew wanted to share with you about hatching a dinosaur. We don’t do normal pets round here! ?

He had some pocket money, and whilst we were browsing in a shop, spotted a box with a dinosaur egg in it. Immediately, he decided that was what he wanted to spend his money on. It was within his budget, so off we went to the til, with our new family member. 

The instructions said to put the egg in a glass of cold tap water and leave it to sit, and that the egg would hatch, and a dinosaur would appear in two to three days. So we popped the egg in a glass jar, filled it with water, and we watched and waited. 

Lo and behold, cracks started to appear and the excitement and anticipation grew as we waited to see what would hatch. 

This morning, a very excited little boy appeared with a small dinosaur in his hand, shouting “look Mummy, it’s hatched”. 


We aren’t actually entirely sure what it actually is? Diplodocus? 

Well worth spending pocket money on. In fact he’s saving to buy another one. I love this sort of stuff, that encourages imagination. We’ve spent a lot of time talking about dinosaurs, how they hatched, how big they were, what kind of dinosaur might come out of the egg. It’s been fun.
