Supplies

Day 1

  1. Take the mouth of the balloon and insert two fingers into the balloon stretch the opening.
  2. Insert the dinosaur into the balloon.
  3. Fill the balloon with water. I  suggest fillig it up until it is the size of an orange.
  4. Place the dinosaur eggs on a tray in the freezer.
  5. Freeze the balloons overnight.

Day 2

  1. Fill up three to four water bottles.
  2. Add a teaspoon of salt to each water bottle.
  3. Place the top on the water bottle and shake until the salt dissolves.
  4. Take the balloons out of the freezers.
  5. Cut the balloon near the knot and peel the balloon off the frozen egg.

How to Play:

  • Take the frozen dinosaurs eggs outside.
  • Place the eggs on the ground.
  • Slowly begin to pour the warm salt water over the eggs. It will start to crack.
  • The dinosaurs will begin to be released from the frozen egg.
  • If the dinosaurs will not release with pouring the warm salt water,  hold the egg  about 4 feet above the ground and drop it. Ice will fly everywhere but the dinosaur will break free.
