  • BJ Riordan

    Coffee Ground "Fossils" Create your own fossils to display by using old coffee grounds. These work well as visual aids for science projects and makes a fun Earth Day craft for kids. *Visit our Earth Day homepage for more recycled crafts as well as recipes, fun printables and teaching kids about Earth Day. Take our quizzes, Are You Living Green? and What's Your Earth Day IQ?, to test your knowledge on all thing eco-friendly. *What you'll need: 1 cup of used coffee grounds 1/2 cup of cold coffee 1 cup of flour 1/2 cup of salt Wax paper Mixing bowl Some small objects to make impressions in the dough (Shaped cookie cutters work well.)  Empty can or a butter knife Toothpicks, optional String to hang your fossil, optional *How to make it: Stir the together the coffee grounds, cold coffee, flour, and salt until well mixed. Knead the dough together and then flatten it out onto the waxed paper. Use the can to cut out circles of the dough or use the dull knife to cut slabs large enough to fit your "fossil" objects. Press your objects firmly into the dough. When you take the object out, you have your "fossil". If you want to hang the fossil, poke holes into the edge to hold the string. Let the fossil dry overnight (and up to two days) and then hang it if you wish. *Tips: To reduce the drying time, bake the fosils for a short period of time to get the "dough" to harden.
