- Dinosaur Toys (Such as Papo Dinosaurs)
- A rectangular plastic or glass dish at lwast 2 inches (5 cm) high
- Carrot tops with leaves

You can also push sprigs of leaves in a little modeling clay to make more vegetation. Place your dinosaurs on your very owen Nublar Island.Read more >
Here is an activity that can further help you understand the different types of eggs laid by different types of dinosaurs.
Using paper-mache and party balloons, you can build your own dinosaur eggs. First find a good workspace and cover it with newspaper. Then, make sure that you have these materials.

- 4. wallpaper paste (or any other types of wheat paste of paper-mache)
- 5. water
- 6. a bucket for mixing the paste
Find balloons that are the right size for the eggs you want to build. Small party balloons make great Oviraptor eggs, while larger balloons make nice Maiasaura eggs. If you are really adventurous, large, round balloons make good Sa…
