Salt Dough Dinosaur Fossils

This page includes salt dough dinosaur fossils with prepared  by me for my sweet girl our dinosaur theme.

What You’ll Need

  • flour(2 cups)
  • salt(1 cup)
  • water(1 cup)
  • plastic dinosaurs
  • food coloring(optional; red/blue/yellow)

How We Did It

  • Mix the flour and salt together in a large container.
  • If you’d like to have brown dough, add several drops of red, yellow, and blue food coloring to your water.
  • Gradually add water, stirring as you go, until you have a dough-like consistency.

Note: You don’t want the dough too wet, so you may not need all the water.

  • Form the dough into a ball, dust it with flour, and knead it for at least five minutes. The longer you knead it, the smoother it will be. If your dough gets too sticky, add more flour to the dough, to your hands or to your kneading surface.
  • Roll your dough out to about 1/2″ to 1/4″ thick. Cut circles out using a cookie cutter or a glass.
  • Press your dinosaurs into the dough and then carefully remove.
  • You can let your dinosaur fossils air dry, but for best results, bake them at 200 F for 2-3 hours. You can increase the temperature up to 350 F, but your fossils may get more brown on the top.
  • Paint the dinosaur imprints with watered paint to bring out the dinosaur details in the prints.

Happy exploring!
