Chocolate Chip Cookie + Toothpick = Fossil Dig!

Chocolate Chip Cookie + Toothpick = Fossil Dig!

Here's a fun, easy peasy, and delicious activity for all those aspiring paleontologists out there! Start with a chocolate chip cookie. Homemade or store-bought is fine. You can also experiment with soft-baked versus crispy. (P.S. Leftovers are DELISH in a cup of coffee during naptime. Shhh!)

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. chocolate chip cookies
  2. toothpicks
  1. Imagine your cookie is the earth and the chocolate chips are dinosaur bones. Using your toothpick or craft pick, carefully dig out each chocolate chip, trying not to break the chip or your pick.

  2. You might try scraping around the sides of the chip before digging or prying it out. See how many "fossils" you can recover. Then feel free to gobble them up!
