We picked up two crack-your-own geodes from Dinosaur State Park and thought a quiet Saturday afternoon would be a perfect time to crack them.
Steps to cracked-geode goodness:
- Get two old socks and put the still-whole rocks inside them.
- Put the socks on the ground (preferably concrete or blacktop).
- Gently hit them with a hammer until they crack (ours each cracked into 4 pieces).
- Marvel at how pretty your husband’s geode is, complete with nice crystals. Wonder why your own rock is full of… well, rock.
