Dinosaur Day!

Dinosaur Egg Art

  1. Gather your materials. I like using colored chalk for this project because it gives the paper a egg shell look and feel. If you don’t have chalk paint, crayons or markers work fine too!
  2. Draw and cut out the egg from your paper, any non coated paper works, shiny coated paper is hard to use chalk with.
  3. For older preschoolers if you have an egg in your fridge bring it out and talk about how small it is, and how a little chicken comes from it. dinosaur eggs were usually very large because many of the dinosaurs were giant!
  4. Go nuts! Name the colors while your child is using them. Watch little ones with chalk, it’s a choking hazard- and new pieces tend to break, I pre break them to avoid tiny pieces.

Song!


I’m a little dinosaur,
dinosaur, dinosaur.
I’m a little dinosaur ,
I have a very quiet roar!

I’m a great big dinosaur,
dinosaur, dinosaur,
I’m a great big dinosaur,
I have a very loud ROAR!
