Gift Guide: Discover With Dr. Cool (Review and Giveaway) CLOSED

 "The Discover with Dr. Cool science line is all about the thrill of adventure—something we believe drives all scientific discoveries. Our mission is to show kids the cooler side of science with our unique series of earth science kits. Each kit offers an exciting hands-on experience that will inspire young learners with the wonders of the natural world. Whether they’re cracking open geodes, peering into ancient amber, examining real bugs, or uncovering fossils like a real palaeontologist—all the Discover with Dr. Cool kits are so much fun that kids won’t even realize they’re learning!"
My oldest daughter has always loved rocks. When she was smaller she would always have two rocks in her fists when we went for walks. She would stop dead in her tracks to pick up a rock that I couldn't even see! As she is getting older I thought she would love the experience of breaking open real geodes.
 
We received Discover with Dr. Cool's Basic Geode Kit, which included 6 geodes from the same mine and safety goggles. The geodes in the Basic Geodes Kit that we reviewed "are millions of years old and were formed when prehistoric volcanoes erupted." 

I was a little apprehensive to break open these extremely old geodes, but it was so worth it! My daughter and my husband and I had a blast breaking these open. We broke the first one open in our basement, then we decided to go outside because it was a little messy. When we got them open, they were so beautiful, my daughter couldn't believe it! This kit has really fascinated my daughter and her interest in rocks, if that is even possible! We went to the museum today and walked through the Gems and Minerals Exhibit, which we were able to relate back to this Geodes Kit which was neat!
 
Discover with Dr. Cool has many neat kits, including their Ultimate Geode Kit that includes 15 geodes from 3 different mines, so you can experience a variety of crystal formations, which could include quartz, fluorite, calcite, or even amethyst!
