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!
If you are looking more fun ways to engage your kids, I highly recommend KiwiCo. As a former teacher, I was really impressed with the quality of materials found in KiwiCo. Some moms have told me that they want to do activities like I do on Mess For Less with their kids, but they just don’t have to the time to go buy all the supplies and prepare them for the activity. KiwiCo is the perfect solution.
Every month your KiwiCo will focus on a particular theme like Colors, Dinosaurs or Gardening. KiwiCo offer a variety of projects ranging from crafts, imaginative play, science experiments and more.
