    I know how to make fossils. Pick either shells or leaves. You will need help to do this (from another adult if possible). You need paper plates, vasoline, the "fossil", and plaster(it can be the quick setting kind, that's why you need help. Grease the paper plate AND THE FOSSIL, mix the plaster, put your item in an let it make an impression in the plaster, you have to help it do that, remove the item and you have a cast of the "fossil". Please keep in mind that I haven't done this since I student taught 4 years ago. It did work well and the kids liked it ALOT!
    I hope this helps you.
