These treasure eggs are great for classroom activities.
Hide them around the yard and allow the children to discover them and open them with a smash of a child's hammer or a larger rock.
To make the dough mix all the dry ingredients together flour, dirt ,salt and sand. Gradually stir in enough water so that the mix holds together.
Shape handfuls of dough around the small plastic dinosaurs into egg shapes.
Give these rocks up to 4 days to dry rock hard.
