Img_9777_thumb I am doing a dinosaur party for my son's 3rd birthday and LOVE so many of the elements of this party. I really love these aged papers with the dinosaur facts. Were these purchased? If so will you please direct me to where I can buy them? If they were made I would love the info on how to make them!! Thanks so much! Great party! Katie

Img_9777_thumb I made them by printing descriptions on tan card stock (home computer). Then I tore the edges and crumpled the paper into a ball. I opened it back up and rubbed brewed coffee on the paper to give it the aged look. Then I dried them in the oven (on a cookie sheet)for about 4 minutes at 325 degrees. I got the dino pictures off google clip art and the facts are from www.kidsdinos.com I made 12 of them and you are welcome to them if you'd like to have them. I may be able to email them to you. I hope this helps.

Img_9786_thumb Thank you. I think opening them at the end was a favorite for the kids!

Img_9882_thumb Here is the recipe I used... Sand Clay Recipe Use an old cooking pot for this project. I used a disposable foil tray. The sand is obviously abrasive, and can damage the finish on the inside of your pot. I also multiplied this recipe several times to have enough so that each child had 4 fossils to open. Combine all in a pot: 1 cup sand 1 1/2 tsp cream of tartar 1/2 cup cornstarch 1/2 cup water Mix with an old spoon and place on a medium-hot stove. Stir and cook until the ingredients liquefy a bit, and then begin to thicken. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Mold or cover objects, and allow to harden overnight! Have fun!

Img_9775_thumb I don't have the exact recipe I used but I don't think it has to be exactly the same. I used refrigerated sugar cookie dough and removed about a third of it. I added baking cocoa to the 1/3 so that it became darker. I cut out the foot shape from the new chocolate cookie dough and placed a footprint on top of each regular cookie (made from the remaining dough). Then I pressed in mini chocolate chips & chopped up pecans. I also added cinnamon to the top. Then I baked them as directed.

Img_9774_thumb I used a basic meringue recipe I found on Google. There are a ton and they are all about the same. I added a bit more powered sugar than was required. Then I placed the mix in a piping bag. I piped the bone shape on wax paper (on a cookie sheet). Then they harden and are complete. They are extremely fragile so be sure to spray your wax paper with Pam and make more than you think you need. I also dropped spoonfuls of melted chocolate on the same wax paper and stuck a small bone in it. Then I sprinkled crushed graham crackers and chopped pecans on top to look like dirt.

Img_0067_thumb What did you use to make the eggs so big to put big toys inside

Img_9362_small

Heather T says...

@ 06:55 on Nov 11, 2011

Img_0067_thumb I paper mached balloons with newspaper. The last couple of layers were made with tissue paper to give it color. I added some gold paint and a name on each one. I cut a jagged slit half way around the top and put the toys inside. When the egg was sitting the slit didn't show. The kids used the slit to help them open the egg up. It was the biggest hit of the party. Most kids kept the egg and wore it as a hat...unexpected but cute. It was a very messy job but it's one you can do far in advance. Good luck! Hope this helps.

Img_9786_thumb what type of paint did you use? i made a practice one but used paper bag and it was sloppy :(

Img_9786_thumb Angela, the only paint I used was for the gold splotches which was just a $1 bottle of acrylic from Michaels that I applied with a paper towel and my hands (to make it sloppy/speckled). The bright color of the egg is from tissue paper. I first wrapped the balloons in newspaper to get the thickness I wanted. Then I covered the newspaper in 3 sheets of tissue paper. That's what gave them the blue, red, yellow and green color. Hope that helps.

Img_9774_thumb Laura O. I don't actually know which recipe used. I literally just google searched "meringue cookie recipe" and picked one. You could also look on Pinterest for a recipe. It's not any special recipe, just one I found on the internet and added extra powdered sugar to. Hope that helps!

Img_9786_thumb This is too cute. I was looking at your instructions and I have a ? How did you get the newspaper to stick to the balloon? Did you use a flour/glue mixture? Did you also use it to make the tissue paper stick?

Hi heather. I was wondering if you had a link to help me with the dino facts that you used. I thought this was a great idea and I wanted to do something similar for my sons party. Thank you!!
