DIY Dinosaur Fossils are a fun way to expand your little ones dinosaur play.  I was amazed at the simplicity of this project .  All you need is a basic salt dough recipe and a few toy dinosaur figurines. After making your dough use the dinosaur toys as stamp.  Press each one into the salt dough and remove it leaving the imprint of the dinosaur behind.  (Much like you would make a handprint salt dough ornament)  After baking your fossils for 2-3 hours remove them and cool completely.  We had a few friends over for a fossil dig in our sand box.  I simply hid the fossils in the sandbox and let the expedition begin.  It was so much fun and not to much work.  I recommend for continued use and play that you modge podge your fossils to prevent them from absorbing water and becoming soft during outdoor play.  :)

The Wasting Nothing Philosophy

Playing, cooking, reading, exploring, loving, laughing, and making a mess with your little one is NEVER a waste of time! It is priority one! It's not just about getting to know your little one. It's about letting your little one get to know you!
