Make A Dinosaur Fossil

Show the kids how to Make A Dinosaur Fossil with their own fossil recipe. Once the fossil is made hide them in some lose dirt and send the kids on a fossil hunt to find their treasures. We found some plastic dinosaur bones, but full size dinosaurs will work for this project too.

Trivia: The word dinosaur comes from the Greek language and means ‘terrible lizard’.
