How adorable is this baby triceratops? My son is mad about all things dinosaur and he just loved making and playing with this little cute hatching dinosaur egg craft. We’ve added it to his dinosaur themed bedroom next and it looks fab!
Here’s what we used
How to make our hatching dinosaur egg craft!
First we started by making our dinosaur egg. To do this, take the paper plate and cut a zig zag line directly through the middle of it. Take the paints and sponge them across the eggs to decorate them – my kids loved this bit! Once they are finished pop them aside to dry.
Cut out a circle for the dinosaur’s body and then a slightly smaller one for it’s head (you may want to check that they fit the egg before continuing)
Cut out several colourful semi circles to make the triceratops’ frill and then glue them down in place around the top 2/3 of its head.
Now add the triceratops three pointy horns and a triangular beak
Then add two eyes to finish the triceratops’ head
Glue the head circle on to the body circle and then take one half of the dried paper plate egg and glue it onto the front of the triceratops as above. Cut out to little feet and stick them onto the front of the egg so that it looks as if it’s feet are popping out.
Take a split pin and secure the two halves of egg together at one corner. Now the egg can move and the baby dinosaur can hatch! once dry your hatching eggs are finished!
