Steps to Make Your Frozen Dinosaur Eggs

Step 1 – Blow up your balloon to loosen and stretch it out

Step 3 – Fill up the balloon with water. We found it easiest to attach it to a faucet and then fill the balloon with water. This will allow you to make bigger eggs.

Step 4 – Put your eggs in the freezer

Step 5 – Take out your frozen eggs from the freezer. Cut off the top and then peel off the rest of the balloon.

Step 6 – Put the frozen dinosaur eggs into your bowl or bin. Then let the kids use a ladle, water bottle, eyedropper, or meat baster filled with warm water to start melting the eggs. We set up two bins one for the frozen eggs and one with warm water and tools.

Experiment to see if it melts faster using an eyedropper of warm water or a ladle full of warm water. Then try using cold water and decide if the ice melts better with cold or warm water added.

Isn’t this an easy science activity for kids to do at home? Your kids will have so much fun creating these fun dinosaurs frozen in ice and then breaking them open.

Make sure to try different small figures to keep the science experiment exciting. It can be a surprise each time to see what they’ll discover.

Colored Ice Balloons

Consider adding color to your Ice Balloons as another fun experiment. We made these cool Ice Gems and did a fun salt melting experiment. In the Winter the kids used the Ice Balloons in their snow forts.

Create a few colored Ice balloons with your Dinosaurs Eggs.
