Dinosaur Fossils

We made our own fossils, and you can too! They're so easy!

All it took was a batch of home-made playdough (no food coloring added or needed). Each student got their own bit of playdough to play with and push small play dinosaurs into, when they were finished they did one final press of a dinosaur into their playdough then we cut around it and left it out to dry. They loved taking home thier own 'fossil'.

My playdough recipe:
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 tbsp cream of tartar
2 cups boiling water
2 tbsp veg oil

Put 2 cups of water in a container in the microwave and heat until boiling. In the meantime, mix the flour, salt and cream of tartar in a large bowl. Once the water is boiling, pour in to the flour mixture along with the veg oil. Stir until incorporated and then finish incorporating all ingredients with hands.
