Creating a fossil stepping stone isn't necessarily paleontologist work. But it is a great, lasting reminder of a fun Dinosaur Day!
What you'll need
A stepping stone kit - available at most garden stores or craft stores - comes with a form, concrete mix, and decorative items
Low grade/common fossils. Use about 10 to 15 per stepping stone. When you buy bulk fossils, you will often end up with items that aren't necessarily display worthy. These are great for a stepping stone.
What to do
Choose the fossils you want to use for the activity. If you are making more than one stone, divide them evenly.
Following the instructions that came with the stepping stone kit, mix the concrete and water.
Pour the concrete mix in the form provided in the kit
Press fossils gently into poured concrete. Make sure they are in firmly so they won't fall out, but not so deep they will be swallowed by the wet concrete.
Add additional decorations from the items that came with the kit (glass, marbles, stones, etc.)
