Materials: Paper and pencil, empty box or jar

Help your child start their very own rock collection!

Get a blank piece of paper. At the top, write your child’s name and the name of their collection.

For example: Eva’s Rock Collection.

Then go for a walk and find their first rock!

Have your child describe what the rock looks like and say where you found it.

For example:

April 2, 2020

Small, smooth gray rock with pink line

Found on the sidewalk near the park

Find a place to keep your collection safe and sound! An empty shoebox, egg carton, or jar could be a great place to store your collection.

Finally, keep adding items to your collection whenever you can!
