This week we are heading to an imaginary Quarry where you are going to be making some fossils!

You might already know that a fossil is the remains or impression of a prehistoric plant or animal, that has been naturally preserved.

Perhaps you have some fossils at home that you have collected on a trip to Ketton Quarry with school, or on a walk with your family.


I thought that you might like to have a go at making your own fossils at home.


What would you like to preserve? You could make an impression of a shell, a leaf, a lego brick or your favourite toy's footprints (check that the item is washable first).


You will need

  • 200g salt
  • 150g flour
  • 150g coffee grounds
  • 100-120ml cold coffee or water
