Coffee Ground Fossils

What you need:
1 cup of used coffee grounds
1/2 cup of cold coffee
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of salt
Small dinosaur figurines

Stir ingredients until well mixed. Knead the dough together. Mold dough around
a dinosaur figurine, covering it completely. Press your dinosaurs firmly into the
dough. The boys should carefully pull the “dirt” away from their “fossil” using
toothpicks or a toothbrush and water. For harder products - let the fossil dry overnight - it will still be
slightly soft (not rock hard). For softer products, place them in a sealed container until used.
