Dinosaur Fossils

We are continuing our dinosaur theme and today we made some dinosaur fossils.

Here’s what you’ll need: some modeling clay and some small dinosaurs.

Explore the modeling clay for a few minutes, it’s fun to play with.  I asked Hailey questions about what it felt like and smelled like, etc.

Then roll the clay into a ball.

Then press it down nice and flat.

Press a dinosaur into the clay hard enough to leave an impression.

Here’s the finished fossils.  It takes a few days for them to completely dry.  Once they dry you can add them to a sand box and then pretend to be archaeologists digging for dinosaur fossils.

  1. Oh, I like this idea better than the one I did, we used Plaster of Paris to make ours. I’d used Model Magic before and think its hard to sculpt so didn’t try it, but it looks like this went well! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for sharing this… my grandsons are crazy for dinosaurs, they will love this. About how many fossils did you get out of one package?

    Great idea, but your kid would be pretending they are a paleontologist.

    Paleontologist is a scientist who studies fossils.
    Archaeologist is a scientist who studies pass human civilizations.

    Not trying to be a troll, just a science nerd 🙂
