DIY dinosaur eggs

I have never met someone who loves eggs more than Ben. His imagination with them is so fun to watch and cracks me up every time. (haha! pun intended) 
 Ella has an empty egg carton in her play store with some wooden eggs and every time he has come over that is the first thing he goes for. I don't think he ever let them leave his hands during McKenna's birthday party. I love that kid.
Last time he was over he would hide them under a pillow and have me come sit with him as we waited for them to "hatch." I feel like Ben and I have bonded over some good egg watching:)
I knew exactly what to do for his birthday this year. 
His very own carton of dinosaur eggs!
I just printed off a label, laminated it with packing tape and glued it onto an old egg carton.
I bought these eggs from Hobby Lobby for 34 cents a piece and painted them.
I tried to give them a hatched look with some crackle paint but it would never work. My favorite kind of paint was this Snow-Tex that I found at hobby lobby. It gave them a cool texture and a very dinosaurish look, whatever that is.
Happy hatching Ben!
