When we made the Dinosaur kindergarten pack with Cassie at 3 Dinosaurs I knew I wanted to do something with fossils. I suddenly remembered the salt dough creations from Tired, Need Sleep and knew I had it! I mixed the salt dough together and then added in some curry to make it look a bit more like sand/rock. The curry also made it smell pretty good!
Salt Dough Recipe:
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water
Mix until dough forms. Bake at 200 for an hour or 2, depending on how thick your creation is.
I used wax paper so that I wouldn’t have a salt dough mess on the table. I rolled out the dough and then cut it in little circles using the lid from some peach containers. Then we carefully pushed the dinosaurs into the dough and removed them.
I let the fossils bake for about 45 minutes. They were not completely dry but we weren’t planning on keeping them forever so I didn’t swear it.
