Different small froms - eg. from "kinder surprise" or other candy forms
Small leafs from different herbs
Small edible insects you may find in nature - for example. the ants are good (remember to check if the species is poisonous). Freeze them before you put them in. If you find it easier you can also use small gummy candies eg insects, spiders, worms, etc.
What You Do:
Wash and dry the forms.
Spray each with a light layer of cooking spray.
Mix the gelatin with the boiling water. Stir until completely dissolved.
Add a drop of red or yellow food coloring, ad your flavor, and stir.
Carefully pour the gelatin in the forms so they are about 3/4 full.
Place the forms in the refrigerator.
When the surface is almost set, gently press a the herb, insect or candy into each of the forms. You can use a toothpick to push the inclusion. Make sure that the candy is only part-way down, so that it looks suspended in the gelatin, rather than sunken down at the bottom. Because the gelatin is not completely set at this point, the hole from where the gummy was pushed in should close up and disappear.
Refrigerate the fossils for several more hours until completely firm. Once firm, invert each form onto a plate. Ask your child what she sees in the “amber”
Now tell her it’s time to make like a fossil hunter, and DIG IN!
