Fun with Fossils

My boys love to help cook and they love to get dirty so this was the perfect project for them to help me with.  Plus it was nice to have a few extra hands to help me!

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 Cup Sand
  • 1/2 Cup Used Coffee Grounds
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Flour
Combine all ingredients except water
Slowly add water until thick dough forms.
Now it's time to get our your DINOSAURS!
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.  With a spoon, scoop out about a golf ball sized amount on to an ungreased baking sheet.  I used the bottom of a glass to flatten them out.  The dough will be sticky.  
Use the plastic Dino feet to make imprints in the dough
Bake for about 25 minutes.  Using a metal spatula, flip them over and bake for another 5-10 minutes to dry out the bottom.
