Wordless/Wordful Wednesday – The Hatching of a Dinosaur Egg

in Dinosaurs,Princess Nagger,Wordful Wednesday,Wordless Wednesday

When we visited the Museum of Natural History in Iowa, we of course had to make a stop in the gift shop to see what kind of dinosaur loot they had.  A hatching dinosaur egg was of course a must:

These things are pretty cool – you put them in warmish water and wait for the dinosaur to bust out of the shell.  Princess Nagger wanted to get it started right away:

Let the hatching begin:

Princess Nagger decided it was time to let her newly acquired Dinosaur Friends watch the hatching process.  You know, an educational experience:

Even the new Pteranodon ring had to check things out:

It’s hard to be patient waiting for progress (and not pick at the shell to speed up the hatching process):Unassisted Progress:Meet Demetri the Dimetrodon:

Yes, she named it and yes, I had to ask her what kind of dinosaur it was because I had no clue.  She saw me putting this post together last night, so she decided it was time to drop him in the drink again to make him grow (they can be regrown over and over).  So Demetri is currently expanding his size:

I have a feeling Santa will be bringing a few of these this year since Princess Nagger loves them, and they enable hours of fun.

Now that is a fun and neat education thing. I love how she brought all her dinosaurs to watch the egg hatch. How cool is that it keeps growing too.

I need to get this for my nephew. I guess I need to make sure he is still into dinosaurs. :)

Those look cool. I got something like that one time from the Target dollar aisle. They were little capsules that you dropped in water and then they turned into spongy bugs. My daughter loved them.

32 Faythe July 21, 2010 at 2:34 pm

I love the photo story! Princess Naggars look of slight impatience is priceless! They keep changing the names of dinosaurs how does she keep up? I know I have seen that some where, I will have to really think to remember, maybe by the time my grandsons are old enough to be patient I will! LOL! I was a girl ahead of my time I guess, liking dinos, but my sons liked it! thanks for stopping & linking up again. I enjoy your photo stories with the Princess!

45 Mrsbear July 21, 2010 at 11:24 pm

Very neat. Although we haven’t had the best experiences with the “growing” reptiles, the ones we’ve gotten seem to be filled with an expanding jelly like substance that is nothing but mess. All have been banished outdoors before they’ve conveniently disappeared. I call that magic.

49 The Urban Cowboy July 22, 2010 at 10:02 pm

Now that is way cool. I don’t remember anything like that when my son was younger, if they did he would have dug it for sure. He was big time into the dino’s.
