E Week- Treasure Eggs

I saw these cool treasure eggs at Play Create Explore.

The dough for these eggs is made with coffee grounds, flour, salt, sand, and water (which I cut down to 1/2 cup instead of 3/4). Once the mix was ready, I started sandwiching some little treasures between layers of dough and shaping the eggs. I was able to make eight eggs with one recipe.

I placed the eggs on a cookie sheet and baked them at 200* for about 45 minutes.

Trip had a hard time getting the first egg open, so he asked for a knife.

The knife didn't do any good, so I helped him crack it open.

It's a lizard!

He was excited to find a bouncy ball in the next egg.

 It then bounced off of the table and he said, "touchdown!"

Then, he decided that the eggs were dinosaur food and proceeded to feed the dinosaur that we hatched earlier in the week.
