What kid hasn’t had some sort of rock collection? Discovering new rocks, shiny pebbles, and hidden gems in the great outdoors is always a treat for kiddos, mine included. Over the years, we have collected our fair share of unique rocks and have even gone mining for diamonds (Herkimer Diamonds or crystals to be exact). Plenty of pockets and jars have been filled with amazing rocks taken from favorite beaches and turned into collections. There are so many fascinating ways to explore geology for kids with simple science experiments and geology activities. Join us and be a collector this year!
