Mix up a batch of dough and create a fossil imprint in your own kitchen.
What You'll Need:
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup salt
- 3/4 cup water
- Measuring cup
- Objects for fossil making (leaves, shells, twigs, or boiled and washed chicken leg bones)
How to Make Fun Fossil Imprints:
Step 1: Measure and mix together the flour, salt, and water to make a salt dough. Knead the dough for five minutes, and form it into small balls. Flatten the balls to prepare them for a fossil print.
Step 2: Make impressions in the dough with the different objects.
Step 3: Make one print in each flattened ball. Place the fossils on a rack, and let them dry for several days.
