How about mixing a craft activity with a bit of geography and history knowledge too. Perfect for a miserable day to create a collection of fossils.
- Our white dough
- Collection objects you want to fossilise
- Rolling pin
- Roll out dough thickly to just under 1cm
- Print objects you want make fossils of
- Bake for two hours (longer than original method says to get the darker look for fossils)
How fossils are made
This is a great activity to do with all ages but perhaps you can do this activity with older children to help explain how fossils are made. Kiddle is a great online resource for children-here is their explanation.
