 beach 001002 Caleb’s birthday is just around the corner (6!!) and the party is in a couple of weeks – eek. It is dino crazy and we are having a ‘planned party’ but still wanted to fit in a little hand made fun with Caleb. I found a tut on how to make your own dino egg that they could chip away at – if you squint really hard it looks like an egg doesn’t it – no still looks like poo. It is also made with tonnes of coffee grounds and stinks so perhaps 20 6 year olds don’t’ need additional stimulant. Drawing board again.

Bet there is more classier spaces at Kirst’s.

6 year olds will love it- the stinkier the better- I think they will love it more if you tell thm it is dinosaur poo rather than an egg and the baby dinosaurs are all lost in the stinky stinky disgusting poo.

this was NOT a 'photo is worth a thousand words post' - i needed the explanation and it is toooo cool! Thanks for the great idea!

Angie said...

My vote is with Cath, they will love the stinky poo-eggs!

Hmm, some interesting perspectives there. I reckon back to the drawing board personally ,but then I'm not a 6 yo boy! Good luck!

You are not seriously having 20 6 year old's to a party are you? Holy cow! I think it's an awesome idea, the kids are going to love it PLUS 6 year old's love poo!

Hi, welcome..... said...

Oh good on your for trying - i think the 6 year olds will love it though so dont chuck it...if it stinks and looks like poo - i agree with the others, it will be a HIT!!

I bet the kids will love chipping away at the dino-poo-looking-egg :)

It's the classiest poo-egg I've seen. True dinks. And to six year olds it's all in the MARKETING (how else would I get my kids to eat shellfish, etc, if it weren't called Tentacle Soup?).

Sounds like we need to liaise for T-Rex gift tag handovers...

That is a great idea! I agree, the kids will love it. Even if it's stinky :)

Der, as if dinosaurs coming out of poo won't appeal to 6 year old boys! I know a nearly 7 yr old it will appeal to as well!

Just laughing a bit, sounded good and wasn't even all that bad to look at but the caffeine thing totally killed it lol...It would be a hit though no doubt....

Sally said...

WOWZA! Your going to have a hyper-dino party! FABULOUS!

Hard to tell from the photo what you were making ... a dinosaur egg. The stinkiness might disappear but will 6 year olds care? You can just tell them that's what 20,000 year old eggs smell like. LOL
