This summer looking for gold was all the rage at our house. O Boy spent many happy hours out on the porch with a hammer and a few friends, smashing away at rocks in the hopes of finding gold. Good thing we had some Little Tikes plastic goggles to keep them safe!
|O Boy took this picture himself, apparently showing gold or silver in this rock.|
|KM shows off what he's discovered.|
|The Little Smasher|
|O Boy took these photos of pages in a DK book so that he could take them outside and compare them to what they were seeing in the rocks they were smashing around our house. Good planning!|
|There were so many chips flying everywhere we had to set up some cardboard box guards so that other smashers wouldn't get hurt.|
|Could be gold!|
