Supplies You Will Need
– Rolling pin
– Small item for molding (ideas: small plastic toy dinosaur or bug, seashell, leaf, etc.)
1. Knead your clay. Knead your clay until it has reached a pliable state. It will be easier for the following steps.
2. Roll your clay. Roll your clay until it is about ½ the depth of the item that you will be molding for your fossil. This makes the best mold. We used a rolling pin from our Play-Doh set. You could also use a drinking glass or other item to roll your clay.
Please let us know if you try this fun project. We would love to hear about what fossils you have made. Please send us a link to your site where you have uploaded pictures of your fossil masterpiece. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have. Check back with us tomorrow for Part II.
