Make Your Own Fossils

We’ve been slowly fazing in some Rocks, Minerals, and Fossils to our science lessons, and this was one of the activities that we just had to do!

fossil crafts is a super simple way for children to make their own fossils.

I had no idea that Plaster of Paris could be so easy to work with!

(I had envisions of cement mixers, inhaling nasty white powder, and crusty rock formations on my best spatula)

However with a little prep work, None of that occurred, and we had a fantastic time making fossils!

And apparently our excavation site was somewhere in the Asian territory of a remote place called “ANIHC”

  1. Cool idea! What if you put one of those in a small box of sand or dirt and let your kiddo “excavate” it?

  2. Oh ha ha, you already suggested that in your project info. :)

  3. I also was scared to try this. But not anymore! Thanks :)

  4. I know you are pooped out on Owl stuff but have you seen this
    live webcam of Molly the Owl? She has 5 little ones! 3 are hatched
    2 more eggs to go! It is addicting!

  5. Love the ANIHC! Great idea, thanks for sharing!
