Looking for a quick and easy sensory activity for the little ones? This fossil dough recipe consists of things you probably already have at home!
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup used coffee grounds
1/2-1 cup cold coffee
Mix together the flour, salt, and coffee grounds. Slowly add in the cold coffee - this will determine the consistency of your dough so you want to add it a little at a time. Mix everything together and begin kneading the dough when the consistency starts to thicken. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour until you get the consistency you are looking for.
It is okay if the coffee grounds are not completely dry - they will continue to dry out as the dough gets used, so just use a little less cold coffee. Then, let the kiddos go to town! We had fun hiding dinosaurs and other animals in the dough and digging them out.
Hope you enjoy this as much as we did :)
