How to make fossil dough – 
The coffee ground dough is made using simple ingredients, including cold coffee and coffee grounds and all ingredients are easily found in your home.  The dough will last for at least a month if stored in an airtight container.

This simple, no cook dough will keep your children busy for hours. The children I worked with always called it fossil dough because of the texture and it’s ability to make wonderful imprints of their dinosaurs.
