This craft was fun to make and fun to play with. My toddler loved this one and I think this would be fun to make and use for a scavenger hunt for a birthday party.
Dinosaur Fossils (or Eggs)
What You Need:
11/4 cup dirt
11/4 cup flour
3/4 cup salt
1/2 cup sand
Mix all your dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add small amounts of water and mix until it begins to hold together. You want it to be a dough-like texture.
Mold your "dough" around your plastic dinosaurs. Leave to dry. This can take a few hours or several days. Or, you could be a dummy like me and leave your tray outside and then have it rain....which prolonged the drying time considerably. I ended up popping these in the oven on very low heat to help speed along the drying process.
Then, let your kids go to town cracking these open.
