Activity 3

Make your own fossil – if you are able to (and have the ingredients – I can’t get flour anywhere!)

1. Make up some salt dough with ½ cup salt, 1 cup flour, ½ cup water. (for a more authentic looking fossil, use ½ cup of cold coffee and add some coffee grounds if you have any)

2. Knead the dough and flatten out before cutting out rounds with a cookie cutter.

3. Imprint your dough with anything you like – shells, toy dinosaurs, footprints etc.

4. Leave them to harden overnight or bake in the oven on a low temperature until hard.
