It’s dinosaur week at Moonfrye! Turn your own backyard into a prehistoric playground with our super easy DIY dinosaur fossils craft. We buried our finished fossils around the yard and let the girls have a blast playing archeologists on their very own “dig.”
What you will need:
Small dinosaur toys
4 cups flour
1 cup salt
2 cups water
Large mixing bowl
Baking sheet or jelly roll pan
Round object for shaping fossils (a small bowl or a drinking glass works fine!)
Step 1: Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Combine flour, salt and water in the mixing bowl until well blended.
Step 2: Roll dough out until it’s approximately 1/4″ thick.
Step 3: Using a small bowl or drinking glass, cut circles out of the dough.
Step 4: Press toy dinosaurs firmly into the dough circles to create the “fossil” impression, then remove.
Step 5: Transfer fossils to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet or jelly roll pan and bake in the oven for one hour. Allow to cool completely.
Step 6: Use your dinosaur fossils to create your own prehistoric adventure!
