Fossil Prints

What You Need (per person)
Stone Dough Mix
1/2 cup of salt
1 cup flour
1/2 cup of brewed coffee (cold)
1 cup of used coffee grounds
Measuring cups
Mixing spoon

FOSSILS to imprint
Leaves (stiff bay leaves work well)
Dead, hard shelled bugs like roly-polys
Chicken bones (cleaned, boiled, sterilized)
Plastic dinosaur to get skin texture or footprints
Mixing Bowl

1. Measure salt, flour, coffee, and grounds; add each to bowl; and stir together until well mixed. Turn this dough out onto a large sheet of waxed paper and knead it until smooth.

2. Break off a piece large enough for the imprint you want to make, roll it into a ball, and use the heel of your hand to flatten it out.

3. Press the object you wish to make a fossil imprint of firmly into the dough. You can use more than one object if you like. Carefully remove the objects to leave the prints behind. Let your fake stone dry overnight and you have an imitation fossil!
