Most helpful positive review
We had so much fun smashing these to bits cracking them open to show natures beauty inside of them. I think everyone should pick up a few boxes of these and have a fun activity the whole family old and young can enjoy. It took a few whacks with the hammer but it wasn't too hard to break and it was very stress relieving. More geode rocks in the box would be nice this activity goes by quickly and leaves you wanting more and more. My son loved the poster the most he is a reader and very visual person that part was right up his ally. My daughter didn't like the as she put it ugly safety glasses but they were nice add so that we didn't get rock dust in our eyes. I recommend everyone run out and get a few of these kits so they too can have an awesome family night.

Great for kids

I received this product for review purposes and my kids absolutely loved it. It's very well worth purchasing just because or as a gift. It's very beautiful and kids will enjoy breaking them down to see the beauty that is inside.

Great set for kids

My daughter loves this Geodes set. She had so much fun breaking the rocks and then examining them. She loved the poster that was includes which told you all about Geodes. Great set for kids!!

Great STEM Activity for Kids

I have a 6 year old daughter that is absolutely fascinated with any rock she can get her hands on. She has even started collecting rocks that she finds. I knew she would love this and getting to break open the geodes. This kit contains 3 natural geodes, 1 pair of safety goggles, 1 magnifying glass, a poster and easy to follow instructions. My husband assisted our kids in breaking these, and each child chose a different way to break open their geode. We used a hammer to break one, we placed one geode inside of an old sock and broke it with a hammer and the last was broke with a hammer and chisel. These are actually a little more difficult to break than what we were expecting, but we did eventually get them all broke open. The inside of these geodes are gorgeous! My kids love the way they look whenever the sunlight hits them. My kids have always been huge science fans and I love the fact that I could provide them with a simple to set up STEM activity. I was actually able to let them do this during the middle of the week (on a school night even). That is how quick this activity sets up. I love how the poster provides facts that the kids can learn from. Overall, I am completely satisfied with this "Break Your Own Geodes" Kit. It provided my kids with an educational activity, taught them additional facts about geodes and it was something my kids loved showing off to visiting family whenever they came over to visit. I would most definitely recommend this kit to anyone with a child that loves rocks/science based activities.

Fun set!

This is an awesome set to introduce geodes to kids. It is educational and fun! The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because of the quality of the eye protrction goggles. The goggles are not one piece. They are a rubber frame eith a plastic piece that fits in the frame to protect the eyes. They essentially arrived "broken" because you have to attempt tonfit the plastic piece into the rubber frame when it falls out. In my opinion, it would have been a lot better to include a set of goggles that were one piece. Other than that, the geodes came out really cool. I definitely recommend breaking the geodes with a hammer and chisel. When you attempt to break a geode with just a hammer, there is a higher chance of it shattering into smaller pieces versus breaking in half. Overall, I think this would make a good gift or product to introduce kids to the beauty of geodes!

Good for older kids

This is a great science "project" for kids. Because of the tools needed adult supervision is a must. Two of our geodes were very good and have lots of crystals to see. The third one was solid the whole way thru, but it's still pretty. I do not recommend the sock method, unless you have a really thick sock that you are willing to tear up. My kids enjoyed this and now want to buy more geodes.

Very cool, easy to break

My kids and I enjoyed this activity, the geodes were a good size and easy to break open with a hammer, so easy that we broke the first 2 a little too hard and smashed them pretty good. Included in the box are 3 natural geodes, one pair of kid sized goggles, a small plastic magnifier and a poster about geodes, had it included a few more geodes and I would have given it 5 stars. Two of the geodes we got were about the size of a golf ball, the third was a bit smaller than a tennis ball, all 3 had white crystals on the inside just like what is pictured on the box cover so I would assume that all packages contain the same type of geodes. Once cracked open we were all impressed by how pretty and sparkly they were and by how much crystal was inside. As I stated earlier I wish the box had a few more geodes, given their size 3 is a decent amount but more would have been better, also it would have been cool to have at least one of them a different color. The only negative can see is that there is nothing on or in the box that explains what type of crystal you get once you have the geodes opened, there is a poster that explains what geodes are and there is an instruction sheet that tells you the different types of geodes but nothing that simplifies it like a picture naming each kind so kids can match up what they have, all I can tell is that we got white. Overall we are happy, a fun easy activity for the kids who learned something new and they get a beautiful treasure to keep and display, I definitely recommend it.

Not what we expected for “geodes”

We got these thinking cool we get see what I thought were real geodes and not too sure they are real . You get 3 “geodes”, safety goggles, a magnifier to get an up close look at once you crack them open it also came with a cool poster about geodes.

We were pretty excited to crack these “geodes” open and see what was inside, what I noticed was they all seemed to be the same size and shape, first alarm bell, hmm these don't look real to me. I guess for the kids it was ok to think they actually were opening “geodes” but I was under the impression they were actual ones. I don't believe they were. Oh, you need a hammer and a chisel or screwdriver to open these and we put a cardboard box under then...OPEN THESE OUTSIDE if you don't want little chunks of “geodes “ all over. All in all good for real young kids but for those that are older like 8- 10 yrs I would say not really as they may have already seen the real McCoy's in school.? Would I try these again, I don't think so.

Messy, just average

I wasn't that impressed with this. When we received the package there was dust everywhere. The plastic packaging in which the geodes were wrapped was not sturdy enough to contain all the rock dust. The rocks need to be better secured in the package to prevent breakdown during shipping. Also, the goggles and everything in the box were covered with dust. When it came to actually breaking the rocks that was hard for my 9 yr old. The final product was just average and she was not that impressed.
