Kids, Rocks & Hammers Make for Great Science

A few weeks ago the kids and I skipped outside for a bit of smashing fun!  We grabbed our "safety glasses" (which happened to be Miya's spy kit glasses because the real safety glasses were missing), our hammer and our geodes and sat down on the driveway and hammered away!

This is what happens when you give the kids the Oriental Trading Company magazine to look at!  Actually, that's what happens when you give it to your! 

After our smashing we talked about the pretty rocks and how they were formed (thanks to Google I was able to give a quick, kid friendly account!) and how the rocks we just opened came from Mexico. 

Anyway, here are a few pictures of the fun!!
