Dinosaur Fossils!

We had a fun time incorporating playdough into our dinosaur theme today:

We started with making dinosaur figures in playdough:

And then we started to make our fossil dough:

Some instant coffee, flour, and be more precise, here's the recipe we used:

1 cup used coffee grounds

1/2 cup cold coffee.

1 cup flour

1/2 cup salt

Mix it together:

Roll it out and flatten it:

We then pressed in our dinosaurs:

And then put them in the oven for 30 minutes at about 215.  While we waited, we played with "dinosaur bones" (popsicle sticks):

In no time our fossils were ready!

Monkey J showed them off:

He loved them!

And we had fun matching the dinosaur to its fossil:

Monkey A woke up from her nap and did a little painting with dinosaur bones:

The fossils were really neat; they had a great sensorial feel to them and they smelled so yummy, just like coffee!  :)
