Science: “Hatching” dinosaur eggs

This post may contain affiliate links which help support my family. Thank you for stopping by.

Our Poppins Book Nook theme for May is Dinosaurs. My brother and his partner visited Canada in January (they are immigrating there with in the next month or so) and came back with these boxes of dinosaur “eggs” for Koko and Fifi. I put them away and totally forgot about them! I happened to stumble across them while looking for something totally unrelated to this theme, LOL.

We documented the process each morning. Unfortunately, this experiment didn’t work out as planned.

Day 1:
Prepping the recycled instant coffee bottle we are using to grow the dinosaurs. Here is the “grass” that came with the eggs

Day 3:
Hmm, the dinosaurs are looking rather strange

The dinosaurs look like they melted 🙁 I have a feeling my water may have been a touch hotter than the 35*C they recommend.
