Crack your own Geode

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:

  1. Get two old socks and put the still-whole rocks inside them.
  2. Put the socks on the ground (preferably concrete or blacktop).
  3. Gently hit them with a hammer until they crack (ours each cracked into 4 pieces).
  4. Marvel at how pretty your husband’s geode is, complete with nice crystals.  Wonder why your own rock is full of… well, rock.
