Coffee Ground Fossils
We are adding the craft to your Crafts.
The craft was added to your Crafts.
"We’ve made a lot of projects using salt dough, but we wanted these homemade fossils to look more aged. With these coffee ground fossils, your kids can pretend they were on a real-life dinosaur excavation! An easy kid’s craft that’s doable any time of the year! Kids will love creating their own fossils by using old coffee grounds, some cold coffee for color, and of course, salt and flour. The coffee grounds make the finished fossils look more realistic as if they are specked with rocks and dirt. The cold coffee adds a darker color, making them more earthy."

- 1 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup of salt
