So, now what do we do with these? I use them for various crafts, three of which you can see below. My kids have not attempted the resin craft yet, but they will be doing it in April. Resin does have some safety issues that you have to follow, so I know some people use Modge Podge. I have never tried the Modge Podge method. I myself, am fairly new to resin, but I love it. You can go to my other blog, http://www.melissasjewelryandgems.blogspot.com to see all my resin, art, and crochet craftiness.
The kids can also read about fossils, why are there so many fossils in Florida, and the laws on collecting fossils. There are very strict laws on fossil digging, not really the digging, but the keeping of the fossils. Also what makes Petrified Wood. This is a fun way to learn some cool Science, and enjoy nature. We will definitely probably go back again. The little area where we dig is so beautiful and peaceful. The blue piece below is actually resin with blue food coloring and a shark tooth in it. It is really cool. It will be in my Etsy store soon, as my son found a bigger one today and will be making a piece of his own with resin. The clear piece has a shell, that stone I told you about, and part of a shark tooth I think. The top piece I used one of the shells I found, put a little hot glue in there and a coral flower then poured the resin in. It will be a pendant eventually. All of these were made from our first time digging.
