Dinosaur week would not be complete without making salt dough fossils! This is an easy and fun way for children to learn about fossils, paleontology, and dinosaurs.
Supplies: Salt dough, large dinosaur figurines, paint and paintbrushes.
Step 1: Make salt dough using this recipe.
Step 2: Press each dinosaur figurine firmly into the dough.
Step 3: Bake each “fossil” at 350 degrees until it is hardened.
Step 4: After they cool, paint the fossil (dinosaur part) so it stands out from the rest of the dough.
For more fun, you can break apart your fossil and then use the pieces to have a dinosaur dig!
