Rock and Crystal Excavation Kit
Kids are digging for the real thing in these excavation kits! 5 genuine rocks and/or crystals are embedded in each block of gypsum sand plaster. Once dug out and rinsed, they can be identified from the rocks pictured on the box spines.
This was given to my 4 year old daughter as a gift. She loves rocks and like any little kid, she loves making a mess. This gave her both joys! The product is very easy to break apart, but doesn't crumble easily, giving kids the enjoyment of breaking off little bits all around the rocks. The rocks in ours are colored stones with one crystal type. Overall, this kept my daughter busy for about an hour to unearth the rocks and rinse them to get the dust off.
We did this at the kitchen table, but if you have the option to make this an outdoor option, I'd totally take it. The dust is like dry wall dust. It gets on everything, so there was a bit more clean up than I had anticipated. Still rate 5 stars though. Simply for the educational and fun aspect this gave my little one. We will very likely purchase another set in the future.
