Coffee ground fossils is “Crafty Wednesday” project at library

Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald
TOLEDO CHRONICLE - The young people had a fun time at Crafty Wednesdays while they made Coffee Ground Fossils at the Toledo Public Library. They mixed the ingredients for the dough that consisted of used coffee grounds, cold coffee, flour and salt then each person got a “blob” of the sticky stuff and created what they wanted. The kids got very inventive and came up with ideas like a snake, a snowman, a necklace medallion and one piece looked like a sand dollar.  After taking the fossils home, the kids would allow them to dry in the sun and the fossil would then become hard. They could take it a step further and paint their creation if they wanted. After craft time, the kids enjoyed apples and apple dip for a snack. Thanks go to Philip Norton for being our helper.
