Making Fossil Imprints

At Gingerbread House Preschool, they had a fun time making fossil imprints in Play-Doh that looked just like real-life fossils. The children had a lovely time learning about how fossils are made over millions of years and how archeologists dig them up.

Making dino fossils

To make their dinosaur fossils the children took toys of dinosaurs in bone-form and some Play-Doh. The kids rolled the Play-Doh out into a thin layer on paper plates and then proceeded to press their toy dinos into the Play-Doh so that an imprint was left of the skeletal bodies. It looked just like fossils found in the Earth that professionals would find! When everyone was done they rolled-up the Play-Doh, although it could have been left to dry and become hard and solid just like real fossils.
