I let both of the kids get a geode the other day while we were at the Children’s Museum. I know what you are thinking. Wasn’t I just trying to come up with ideas to use all of the rocks the kids have collected? Well, I had a plan for these ~ geode necklaces!
What You’ll Need:
- Safety glasses
- Floral wire or colored wire (we used 22-gauge)
- Needle-nose pliers
What We Did:
The kids put on safety glasses and broke open their geodes. I let them pick which piece they wanted to use for the necklace.
We placed the geode on floral wire and wrapped the wire around it numerous times to secure it. I twisted the ends together, and made a loop around a pencil for the cord to go through. I used pliers to close the loop and cut off the excess wire.
We put a cord through the pendant, tied it, put it on ~ and the kids modeled for the camera!
Educational, because we talked about how geodes are formed, and fun!
