Do-it-Yourself Fizzy Dino Surprise!

Welcome back to our craft and activity corner! Easter is just around the corner and we wanted to scramble the usual chocolate egg hunt formula with an Easter egg craft. (Not that we would ever argue with extra chocolate – that would just be crazy.) If you have some Terra small dinosaurs or other small animal figurines, we have a fizzy and fantastic DIY Dino Egg Surprise to try! Here’s what you will need:

Take a peek at the DIY Fizzy Dino Egg Surprise full process below in this Youtube video. This activity makes 3 fizzy egg surprises

  • Whisk  
  • Bowl  
  • Plastic Egg Molds (find these at your local dollar store)  


  • Baking Soda 1/2 cup   
  • Citric Acid 1/4 cup   
  • Cornstarch 1/4 cup 
  • Vegetable Oil 4 tsp    
  • Water 1 tbs  
  • 3 drops of food coloring 

Directions:   In a bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch). In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients together (vegetable oil, water, and food coloring). Slowly add the wet ingredients to dry mix while whisking. Complete this until fully mixed  In a plastic Easter egg, pour the mixture in to one half, and place your toy in the center. Fill the other egg half with the mixture and close the two parts together. Tap the sides of the egg to be sure the mixture doesn’t stick to the egg. Leave them to dry overnight.  The next day, open your egg to find a mystery fizzy dinosaur egg! Place in water to reveal the surprise inside! 
We think this DIY is an EGG-cellent choice for Easter! Share your DIY Fizzy Dino Surprise and tag us @terrabybattat for the chance to be featured on our Instagram story!
