How to:

1. In a mixing bowl combine the flour, salt, coffee grounds and water. Mix together until a soft dough is formed. 

2. Take a section of dough and press a dinosaur figure into the dough, then form a ball around the figure. 

3. Leave to air dry for two days or bake in the oven at 200 degrees for about four hours. Be sure to turn the rocks every hour to ensure even drying. 

4. Use a hammer to break the fossil out of the rock. Enjoy!
