You can use any fossil or dinosaur toys, just make sure they are clean. Use your own favourite biscuit recipe, or try this one.

You will need

  • 115g butter
  • 55g caster sugar
  • few drops of vanilla extract
  • 150g plain flour
  • 25g cornflour

Mix the butter, sugar and vanilla extract until just evenly mixed. Stir in the flour and cornflour. Roll into a log, wrap in cling film and chill for 30 mins.

Cut slices off of the log and roll out to the thickness of £1 coin. Then press your fossil toy in to the dough. Pop them on a baking tray and ask and adult to bake them at 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4 for 10 mins.

Leave to cool on a wire rack and keep out of the reach of hungry dinosaurs!
