Week 6 Craft: Dinosaur Bones
This week's craft is inspired by Sue, the T. rex fossil found in South Dakota that's the largest and most complete T. rex skeleton ever found. Sue is currently located at the Field Museum in Chicago - you can learn all about her here!
As always, you can pick up the materials to make this craft at the library, or follow the directions below using materials from home!
If you do not have materials from the library for salt dough, you can make your own by combining:
2 cups flour
1 cup of salt
1 cup of water
1. Combine the salt, flour, and water and mix into a dough with your hands. If it is too sticky, you can add a little more flour.
2. Knead for 5-10 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.
3. Roll and shape your dough into dinosaurs bones and teeth.
4. Carefully place your salt dough bones onto paper and let them dry for at least 1 day. Alternatively, they can be baked in the oven at 300⁰ F for about an hour.
