Comments about Dino Eggs Craft Kit :

We were going to make the dino eggs with our kid's camp and the campers were so excited. The concept is awesome and creative but it did not work at all. The S&S directions said follow sculptamold directions for mixing and the bag had no directions. I found some directions online but the sculptamold did not stick well on the balloons. The kids ended up piling it on paper plates and using the little dinosaurs in a landscape of sorts that we let them paint. Decent project in itself, but not what I paid for. We could have done that much cheaper ourselves. This is the first product I've had trouble with and will still continue to use S&S, just will not purchase another dino egg kit.

Comments about Dino Eggs Craft Kit :

There was not enough sculptamold. I purchased 4 packs (to make 96 eggs) and only got 68 made before running out of mold, even though I made them 4 inches, much smaller than the 6" recommended in the instructions. They take a long time to dry/harden (I'd say 48 hours to be fully dry) and break very easily. They were cute and unique though.

Comments about Dino Eggs Craft Kit :

As the "Nature Specialist" at Kenwal Day Camp on Long Island, I used the Dino Egg Craft to teach children (aged 5 through 14) about dinosaurs and eggs. The first problem with the project was getting the tiny toy dinosaurs into the 9" or 10" balloon (which I decided to do myself by rolling up the bottom part of the balloon and slightly stretching the opening up.) I did find the paper mâché time consuming but I solved that problem by making the first batch myself, letting it harden, then the group of kids started the next batch of paper mâché but used previous made batch to paint and crack open. I found that there were several opportunities to teach the kids facts about dinosaurs and eggs in general while doing this hands-on project. After all the projects were made and opened I found that a few kids almost totally cracked the entire egg but almost none of the kids were upset because they were allowed to keep the little toy dinosaur. (FYI, the toy dinosaurs slightly resemble about 4 of the "popular" dinosaurs known, such as Stegasaurs. Also, please note that the paper mâché portion of the project is messy and time consuming.) I would recommend this project for summer camps and school classrooms!

I made the balloons to big and ran out of the sculptamold. I had to visit a website to get the directions to make the sculptamold. Overall product was fun for the kids.
