Save summer boredom with the Rock Detectives kits!

Every Kid Needs a Rock Kit

I believe that every kid needs a rock kit. Why? For so many reasons. This article gives you a few reasons why science education and having fun with science is important for every child.

Science Fun = Summer Learning (and the kids won’t even notice!)

During the summer we sometimes feel like our kids loose some the knowledge that they gained during the school year. I find myself constantly telling my kids to go read a book or work a few pages in their “thinking” workbook. But there are a few, not-so-quiet ways for kids to learn during the summer and they won’t even realize that they are finding out something new.

I designed the Mini Me Geology Rock Detectives line of kits to allow parents to give their kids a fun science kit that not only has large, nice rock and mineral specimens, but has a eBook full of information and ideas to keep your kids busy for hours, rather than in front of the television.

Help! How do I use my new My Rockin’ Collection Rock or Mineral Kit?

I’m so glad you are excited about your new My Rockin’ Collection rock and mineral kit. Your kit has everything you need to identify and learn about your samples. To add to the fun, I created four short articles about using the tools in your My Rockin’ Collection junior or deluxe rock and mineral kits to add to your geology experience.
