An attempt to declare the Glory of God for what He has chosen to do with our lives. A legacy to leave to my children in the telling of it.

Fossils

Fossils have been the science topic around here for the past couple of weeks. Over the years I have somehow morphed from being a "fun home school Mom" to a "get-er-done home school Mom", so it was good to break the mold and do something creative for a change.

I dug out the clay recipe which dates back to when I was the little girl.

1 cup salt

2 cups flour

1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil

Enough water to make a stiff dough.

Food coloring if desired.
Then the kids found lots of fun things to make their very own fossils. I like being the "fun home school Mom".

I think we're studying gravity next . . . hmmmm......

Wow that looks like so much fun! Lizzy went back to brick & mortar school and I went back to work to make ends meet. I miss doing things like this with her.
