Homemade Fossils (for you!)

DSC_0359-1

The latest issue of Alphabet Glue was released a couple of weeks ago!  I really love teaming up with Annie to bring you all a project from each new issue, and was excited to see kitchen table fossils in volume fourteen!  Most of you reading here know that my family is pretty serious about fossils.  My kids also love projects that involve making any sort of dough, so this was right up our alley.  My younger kids had a great time, and my older ones were glad to help out as well.   You can download a pdf with instructions for making your own kitchen table fossils here.  You’ll find that this pdf download includes a great dinosaur themed book list as well!

(I should add that I found in our humid climate that we had to make sure our dough was dry but still moldable–similar to play dough.  Any stickiness in the dough resulted in the objects we used to make our impressions stick to the dough.  Just a little pointer in case you live somewhere muggy like we do!)

Annie is also running a “back to school” sale on all issues of Alphabet Glue right now.  Through September 1st you can receive 20% off all issues by using the code “school” at checkout!
