Making the Dinosaur Teeth

  1. Fill a Styrofoam cup with moist sand.
  2. 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.]
  3. Fill the newly created mold with Plaster of Paris and let sit overnight.
  4. Remove the tooth replica when dry!
