Fun day with Future Prospectors!

Recommended Posts

Every spring I head over to the local preschools to teach the kids about metal detecting and panning for gold. The kids love it because they have a free pass to play in the dirt, and I love it because I get to skip work for the day! :D I held the class last week and we all had a blast. They learned to use a detector, pan for gold, identify various rocks, and they even got to crack open geodes. It is a bit of work to organize, but seeing the expressions on their face after finding a piece of “gold” always makes it worth it! Here are a few photos of our future prospectors in action.
