To finish up "Dinosaur Week", the students at All About Children childcare center created a dinosaur tooth keepsake to take home!

Making the Dinosaur Teeth
- Fill a Styrofoam cup with moist sand.
- Press a dinosaur tooth model into the sand in order to create a mold. [NOTE: The tooth needs to be pressed decently hard into the sand because the shape needs to hold. It might work better to have an adult complete this step.]
- Fill the newly created mold with Plaster of Paris and let sit overnight.
- Remove the tooth replica when dry!
