Forging Fossils

A fossil is the impression of a prehistoric organism preserved in petrified form, as a mold, or cast in rock. Create your own fossil by pressing bones, feathers, textures, and shapes into salt dough. Explore real fossils and artifacts from the London Children’s Museum’s collection and learn how paleontologists uncover and preserve fossils.
