This was really good fun, and something a little different.
I collected eggshells over a week from baking cakes...
and put some tiny toy dinosaurs inside the two halves.
And out they (violently) came...and then they boys had great fun crushing and pounding the shells
with the toy dinosaurs.
Shhh, here are 3 eggs almost ready to hatch!
We used the crushed egg shells to make shakers by cutting sleeves off old shirts
and tieing the ends with elastic bands.
They loved to shake them..such a nice sound and then crush them some more through the material.
