Our Poppins Book Nook theme for May is Dinosaurs. My brother and his partner visited Canada in January (they are immigrating there with in the next month or so) and came back with these boxes of dinosaur “eggs” for Koko and Fifi. I put them away and totally forgot about them! I happened to stumble across them while looking for something totally unrelated to this theme, LOL.
We documented the process each morning. Unfortunately, this experiment didn’t work out as planned.
Prepping the recycled instant coffee bottle we are using to grow the dinosaurs. Here is the “grass” that came with the eggs
Fifi with her eggs
Koko with his eggs
Fifi popping her eggs in the bottle of water
Koko popping his eggs in the bottle of water
Eggs starting to “hatch”
Hmm, the dinosaurs are looking rather strange
The dinosaurs look like they melted I have a feeling my water may have been a touch hotter than the 35*C they recommend.

Blast from the Past is a series where I go back into the blog and repost posts that I feel are relevant to our homeschooling journey today.
I found this really neat FREE check list on Blue Cat Pies on how to curb inappropriate behaviour. I’ve printed it out and put it in my daily check list folder, I’m a check list kinda gal, LOL.
There are 19 different points on this check list.
