Fossil Cookies by marthastewart: Use food safe plastic insects for making the imprints. Great idea for kids!
Fossil Cookies | Martha Stewart Recipes, from Martha Stewart Living, October 2010. I love this easy, spine tingling treat for rocco's birthday party... idea for Halloween. It speaks to the dinosaur-obsessed kid in me, and the recipe is simple enough for easy modifications for special diets.
Fossil Cookies --- New Use for those creepy kids toys!!!! For a future Dinosaur party
Cub Scouts would love whip a bunch of these "fossil cookies" made with plastic bug toys. If you have a budding paleontologist in your house, bake him or her a batch of fossil cookies (recipe on Martha Stewart’s website) for a special treat. I love how the simple act of pressing a plastic insect toy into the top of a sugar cookie transforms it into something so much more interesting. These would be a hit at a bug-loving kid’s birthday party.

Creepy Crawly Bingo ( Use for insect week but remind children that insects have six legs and on this bingo card there are worms, etc.)
Fossils in rocks are fascinating. These cookies, made to resemble them, are equally engrossing. Just press plastic critters in the dough before baking to make imprints.
Aria would LOVE this!!! (1 cup used coffee grounds, 1/2 cup cold coffee, 1/2 cup salt, 1 cup flour - Bake at 200 degrees for 30 min)
