Please Don't Eat the Artwork


Dinosaur Fossils

Leave a comment

Kindergarteners had a blast learning all about clay, dinosaurs, and fossils for this project. Check out the full process here. They loved using colorful mats to practice making texture:


Meanwhile, kinders in small groups stamped dinosaurs, shells, and bones to create their very own fossil.

After they went through the kiln, the fossils were painted brown and sponged off to get a antiqued and dirty looking effect.


Then students used water colors to paint and tied a rainbow string to make a cool fossil necklace!
