The children in the school-age program have shown an interest in mining. It started outside when they used hockey sticks as mining tools to look for treasures in the snow. We decided to bring the idea inside by freezing sand and hiding coloured gems inside. We provided them with mini garden tools to excavate their gems. They were all so excited to uncover their treasures!
