I’ve been waiting and waiting for Jurassic World to arrive in theaters, and now that it’s playing, what better way to get in the Jurassic spirit than to show you how to make dinosaur eggs!
I started making these edible snacks when my kids were itty bitty, and they loved them so much that they made regular appearances on the dinner table and in lunch boxes.
How To Make Dinosaur Eggs
What You’ll Need:
Mason jars or medium bowls (one for each color)
3 cups cool water (for each color)
Unsweetened Kool-Aid mix envelopes in a variety of colors (choose bright colors for best results)
Clear plastic wrap
How To Make Dinosaur Eggs:
1. Carefully roll or tap the hard-boiled eggs to crack shells all over, but leave the shells on the eggs.
2. In a mason jar or bowl, stir together water and Kool-Aid. Add the cracked eggs to the colored water.
3. Cover the containers with plastic wrap; refrigerate. Leave for 1 to 2 days. Remove eggs and throw away water. (They look pretty cool at this point too.)
4. Peel shells off eggs. Keep refrigerated. They’re edible and kids will love them, especially with the Kool-Aid flavors!
Hint: Red and purple will give the brightest color, and if you love the look of the brown-colored shells, that’s purple (grape) Kool-Aid.
