Harry Potter Inspired Dragon’s Eggs

Over the past few months EC and I have been reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. We have just reached the part where Harry is trying to figure out the golden egg clue. Since the egg has featured heavily over the last few chapters, I thought it might be fun to make our own Harry Potter inspired dragon’s eggs.

Make sure you follow my craft board on Pinterest for more ideas, and don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

You will need:

  • Air drying clay (Tiger do a set of 5 for about £5)
  • Wooden egg*
  • Jewel

Before you start I highly recommend choosing what jewels that you want to use. The surface of the air dry clay dries out quickly. If you are too slow you will not be able to push the jewels into it. If this does happen, just take the clay off, work it over in your hands, and reform it.

To achieve the egg shape (and make it a firmer), we covered a wooden egg with a thick layer of air drying clay. *If you don’t have a wooden egg you could crumble up paper or tin foil to get the shape.

Add your gems once it’s moulded.

Then leave it too dry.

We didn’t have a Dragon so we used other teddies.

After ours were ready we set up our own Tri-Wizards tournament where we had to rescue our eggs from an evil monster. I think that this new game might become one of their favourite games to play.

Use air dry clay and jewels to make these Harry Potter inspired Dragon eggs. Not only a fun craft for any potter fan, but also great for sparking imaginative play.
