Panning for Gold Activity
We went outside in search of some small rocks. If you do not have any in your yard, a quick walk around the neighborhood or to a local park will turn up some. We collected our rocks in buckets with each child taking 15-20 rocks.
Panning for Gold Activity Supplies:
- Small rocks
- Gold craft paint
- Small paint brush
- Paper plate
- Parchment paper or foil
- Sand table or container filled with sand
- Sand shovels, sifters and colanders
The rock painting went much quicker than I was expecting. These kids were motivated!
