Are you and (or) your children fascinated with fossils? Do you wander at the mysteries they hold and delight at the fact that you can see something that has been around for hundreds of thousands, upon thousands of years?
Whilst most fossils are held in public museum in glass cages out of the way, there are small fossils that can be bought that can be held and touched and investigated up close.
These great little fossil gift boxes contain different types of fossils – perfect for starting your collection of the prehistoric! Each box contains one ammonite, two gastropods and two pieces of crinoid stem and you get two boxes, giving you a total of 10 fossils that could be over a million years old! Great for show and tell, or for a homeschool natural history project.
If rocks and gem stones are more your thing, than we can certainly help in that area as well. We have a great selection of rock kits including this great starter rock science kit which has 15 different types of rocks, covering the Igneous, Metamorphic, and Sedimentary types of rocks.
Learning about where in the world these types of rocks can be found, how they are formed and how long it takes can make a very interesting science topic for children of all ages. To help them to understand just how amazing the world of rocks is, buy our Rocks for Kids book which will teach you all you ever wanted to know about rocks.
However, it doesn’t have to take a few millennia to grow rocks, in fact with this amazing Magic Rocks kit you can start growing your own rocks in a matter of minutes!
The rocks grow to various heights up to 4 inches high and make an attractive rock garden when finished which you can keep forever. It is available in two different sizes, the large size comes complete with its own plastic display tank.
