Make Fossil Prints from Kitchen Ingredients

Simple Kid/Parent Activites >

This is a Fun Fossil Making activity that kids have a great time doing.  Half of the fun is collecting the nature things to make into fossils.



1 cup Flour 1/2 cup Cold Coffee 1 cup Coffee Grounds (used) 1/2 cup salt Collect: Twigs Leaves Shells Tiny bones

What To Do:
  1. First, have the kids go outside and search for treasures to make into their Fossils.  Good things to use are twigs, leaves, shells, tiny bones, hard-shelled bugs.
  2. Next, measure all ingredients and put into a bowl.  Stir well.  If the mixture seems a little too moist (it should resemble a dlough consistency), add a little more flour.  Knead until smooth.
  3. Work the dough into smooth balls and then flatten on a piece of waxed paper.
  4. Press objects into the clay, using one or more of the collected items.  Remind kids to share.  Allow all fossils to dry thoroughly before removing from the waxed paper.
  5. These are fun fossils for kids to display on a dresser or shelf.
