Well, sort of. The little guys received a little kit to look for fossils that were buried in this little sand brick. They had a fabulous time!
Garrett is just starting. Note Tyler in the background. He waited as long as it took me to snap this picture then he was right there “helping out”.
I did mention it was a “sand” brick right? After getting into it the boys determined they needed “safety goggles”. Apparently, their swim goggles qualify! (They pulled them down over their eyes when they were working.)
Successful Fossil Finders!
They didn’t want to stop there though, so I kicked them outside with their sand bricks, hammers, and chisels, and they happily pulverized the blocks into piles of sand on our back deck.
