Dinosaur Fossils

Nova loves dinosaurs – and when I say loves, I mean LOVES dinosaurs. Always asking questions about them and why she can’t go see a real one. She asked me the other day if we could go see some real dinosaurs – we are still explaining that dinosaurs are extinct! 

We have a ton of plastic dinosaurs around the house, so after I found air-dry clay at Walmart I had the thought of making fossils from scratch. I found a fossil link on Pinterest if you’d like to use it!

Nova picked out some dinosaurs and I helped her make a large coin-like shape for the fossils.


Nova took each dinosaur individually and pushed it into the clay and set them aside to dry.


She had to search through all her dinosaurs and make sure she was using four different dinosaurs.


This is such a easy craft which would be great for a wide age range. They keep really well which is awesome too! Just be careful they aren’t dropped as they could easily crack.
