Science & Nature Days: Geode Project!

IMG_2292

Have you ever had one of those days at work where you just wanna take a hammer and SMASH things?? Well, I got to do just that recently. πŸ˜› I found this cool geode project in a catalogue that I thought would be fun for a science and nature day project. I thought we could get the job done with the tools pictured above, grossly underestimating just how hard we had to smack the hammer against these geodes, so it was time to up our game and get a bigger hammer!

With the proper tools for the job, we busted these little bad boys open, sending sparks flying multiple times in the process, and were delighted to see what we could find inside. πŸ™‚ Some were duds, but some were quite pretty. My photos unfortunately don’t quite do them justice, but I wanted to share them just the same.

We get to do some pretty snazzy things at work, but my favorite days are usually the ones we do fun nature projects. For our next science and nature adventure we’re going to be hanging out with rescued sea turtles and other cool marine critters at the aquarium. Needless to say, I cannot wait! πŸ˜€

Have a great weekend, everyone! ❀

  1. Ahaha I didn’t see this post coming! That’s ace. Sounds fun. Funnily enough my work day sometimes does involves smashing things. Don’t worry I’m not on a chain gang but I do some demolition work and knock down brick walls etc. sadly I’ve never cracked open anything as pretty as what you have though.

    1. Thanks, it really was a lot of fun once we got the right tools for the job. πŸ˜€
      I bet those demolition jobs are great on days you need to let off some steam. I’d be like “HULK SMASH!” Haha πŸ˜›

    1. Amazon probably would have them, but these ones came from “Oriental Trading Company”. Our work has us periodically order stuff/activities for our rooms at work, and when I saw these I thought they’d be something fun and different to try. πŸ™‚ Haha and I feel you on the “Must.Not.Spend.Money” thing. I keep telling myself that, too, and then I keep hemorrhaging money!! D:
