Watch your child’s eyes light up as they strike pay-dirt during an archaeological dig! Kids will embark on a geological adventure as they excavate semi-precious gemstones and identify treasures using a full-color identification guide. Each kit contains everything you need for gemstone excavation, including rocks, minerals, or gems, digging tools, magnifying glass, identification guide, and detailed instructions. For ages 3+
“My son loved this gift. Like many young boys, he’s obsessed with collecting rocks, and he daydreams of being a paleontologist. So, being able to dig out his own rocks was fabulous.” -Feff, Robert’s dad, from Facebook

What's Special About Green Kid Crafts?
Found by a Mom With a Mission
Penny Bauder wanted to spend time on creative and meaningful activities with her kids – but so many crafts seemed so wasteful and time-consuming to organize.
Boxed & Kitted With Love in San Diego, California
Each Green Kid Crafts box contains 4-6 activities and are carefully kitted by hand by our warehouse team in Sunny San Diego
Sustainable by Design
Green Kid Crafts is a green and sustainable business, drawing from Penny’s experiences as an environmental scientist, pictured here researching in the Tongass National Forest in Alaska.
Very cool –
I purchased 2 of these for my daughter & I and my girlfriend and her son to do together on a rainy day. The kids are 3 and 4 years old and they thought this was very cool!!
I ordered this for a homeschool project because my boys were interested in gemstones, crystals and rocks. We had a blast excavating and now the boys carry the gems around in their pockets. I’d recommend this over TV any day of the week. It’s fun and a great learning tool.
5 stars –
Even though this will only last a few hours, my daughter was really excited about finding the rocks in this kit. It is a little messy so just be aware of this. I tried another kit and the rocks were really small, this one was much better.
Great rocks! –
My kids absolutely love doing these type of crafts. They all enjoyed picking away at this one and got some pretty rocks. We’d do it again!
Another amazing gift for a 6 year old boy who loves to dig. Our son sat down & did the entire block before he would get up. Total dusty mess, but worth it! The splatter art kit was a wonderful and unexpected bonus.

My grandchildren loved this kit! We spend a lot of time outdoors looking for “gems” and this was a perfect Christmas gift for them to “hunt” and learn more about geology!
