Treasure Rocks Part II

If you want to know how to make our awesome Treasure Rocks from yesterday’s recipe – click here. 

Here’s what they looked like before we cracked ’em:
All rock-like and ready to go.
My older class stayed and partnered up with someone from Pre-K to help with the rocks
They were excited to see them crack open what they made!  Ours didn’t really break even when dropped, you had to crack them, which was even cooler! 🙂
I didn’t get too many pictures because of all the excitement but we put little carnival prizes in and they LOVED THEM!
Its hard to see but here’s a friend breaking one open with a BOUNCY BALL inside!
SQUOOSH ball thingy – It was easy to break the parts away – trust me

These would be great for younger children just to break open.  For older students it can be connected with fossils or dinosaurs!

So easy-peasy and so much FUN!  I’ll try and add more pictures if I get some more!
