Dinosaur Camp Continued!- The Egg

First thing is first my husband is awesome and here is why...
I had this crazy idea to create a dinosaur egg from another blog
I said I can do this and told my husband and so WE talked about creating this dinosaur egg. Well WE turned into HE while I was out with my friends seeing a movie!

He then added layers and a final layer of white paper then rolled the egg in sand and dirt from outside!

All on their own they gathered this straw hat from dramatic play and ripped up paper to had "softness" to the "nest". Here it now rests!

 We then talked about what we might know about Dinosaurs and here is what we came up with...
