Make Your Own Fossils

I found this activity at the site below and it was a great project to improve fine motor skills, measure ingredients (math), discuss geography and where different fossils large and small have been discovered.  Not to mention another wonderful science experiment that my kiddos loved...

We used shells from the dollar store that we will be using for future presents, crafts in particular left a great impression.  If the dough seems really dark, don't worry it will lighten up quite a bit when it dries.

We let these dry on cooling racks (like you would cool cookies on) as the under side of each stay damp for a few days before they dried completely.
