One of the most favorite things that Ms. Burrito did at the farm last pumpkin season was finding rocks and minerals. There was a stall at Janoski's Farm where you can sift through the sand and water and find these gemstones and minerals. The fee is $5 for each small bag of sand. It was a big hit for the kids.
The rocks they found at the sand is not really worth the amount you paid but the JOY that the child feels when they are doing the "Finding Treasure" was well worth it.
Ms. Burrito's friend screamed "I am a millionaire" when she found the false or fool's gold lol. I was glad that I let her do it because now she has a little knowledge about certain rocks. She even brought her collection in school for show and tell and the teacher complimented her for that.
Have a great weekend everyone!
