We were inspired by Loralyn Radcliffe's Creative Crafts for Clever Kids, to make dinosaur teeth chokers. I was happy to have a project that interested the boys, though the girls joined in, too. The project called for salt clay again, one part salt, two parts flour, and enough water to make it dough-like, but not sticky. I should mention, while we've enjoyed baking up a few salt clay creations lately, and they've turned out well, for general play dough type dough, we still prefer the cooked dough, with cream of tarter (click here, for the recipe).
Before we baked them (which took a couple of hours at the ovens lowest setting), we used a toothpick to make a hole the top of each one, so we could lace a string through, and tie a knot on, to keep them in place on our choker.
Radcliffe suggests placing several on one choker, and using brown shoe polish to give them an aged appearance. D, opted to keep his natural, and to only wear one.
After all, dinosaur teeth are rare. Oh, and as for Creative Crafts for Clever Kids, it has our recommendation. The crafts really are creative, and despite the dozens (and dozens) of craft books we've perused, this one still had a few, that were new to us.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
