Hi. I don't know who originally posted this, but here is the recipe:

I have to share with you this really cool receipe for coffee play
dough.
Okay this is more for younger kids but still I thought valuable if
anyone is doing space, fossils or environments needing stone like
material.
You might have already heard of it, but it turns out really neat.
You mix:

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1/2 cup cold left over coffee
1 cup used coffee grinds

Mix together and knead into play dough. You may need to add more
flour.
The texture comes out really cool..! It looks like stone or sand
rock or clay It is a great texture experience for the children as
well as useful for making fossils or other things such as that.

<<A month or so ago someone posted a clay recipe that included coffee grounds

to make "fossils". I can't find it in the archives, much less my own files -

would someone mind passing it on to me today if possible?

Thanks!
