Save the Dinosaur Egg   Save the Dinosaur Egg Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
4-10 scouts.
Large rock about the size of a bowling ball for an egg - or use a bowling ball.
4-5foot ropes for each scout - at least 6 ropes.
a small pile of leafs or grass for a nest.
Make the nest and place the egg 20 feet or so away from it.
Team cooperation, knot tying, problem-solving
Scenario: Previously thought to be extinct, your group has happened upon a Grazzilasaurus nest.
Unfortunately, the only egg has rolled out and will surely be destroyed if not returned to the nest quickly.
Fortunately, your group is here to help.
Unfortunately, the shell of the Grazzilasaurus egg has an acid coating to protect it from predators.
Fortunately, your group is equipped with special acid-nullifying rope.
Unfortunately, these ropes are slightly toxic to humans - if you touch a rope with two hands while it is touching the egg, terrible things will happen to you, such as muteness or blindness. Touching with just one hand causes no ill effects.
