Make and Take your own Fossils

Make your own Fossil:
Model Magic Clay 
(Michael's and JoAnn's sell the large tub.....don't forget your 40%off coupon.)
Objects to press into the clay to create fossils. 
(shells and other textured objects work well)
Watercolor Paints

This project works great because the students can take their projects home before they are thoroughly dried. I just put them into sandwich bags and tell them to take them out to dry at home. 

We have also made pencil toppers with this product. 
Photo and directions are located here. 

This clay also works great for other projects.  If you are not familiar with this product, check it out here! It dries in 24 hours, is not too messy, can be colored with markers or paint.  We love to blend a small portion of clay with a few dabs of marker to create colored clay.  It also floats when dried.  Wonderful stuff!

  1. Just wanted to thank you for including our butterfly craft on your blog. In a recent overhaul of our site, I had to change the name of the file you used. If you could change the link to this new url I would appreciate it!

    Thanks in advance,
