Making Clay Dinosaur Fossil Prints is a fun way for young children to learn about dinosaur fossils!
Clay Dinosaur Fossil Prints
To make our town versions of fossils, we pressed clay into Petri dishes, which I from the Target dollar bins. I put a parchment circle under the clay so we could easily remove it when we were done.
After pressing the clay flat, they made dinosaur tracks. Pressing the clay flat into the dish is not easy for preschoolers but helps build those small hand muscles. See how we made Clay Dinosaur Fossil Prints.
Now that they are dry, we will be painting them.
