Popcorn Rocks

Hey guys, this is Little Man. This is a crazy cool science craft we did that I think is worth sharing. We found these rocks at a local gift shop. Two rocks for 6$. At first we thought it was just a crazy gimmick. Mom was a little hesitant to spend the money on rocks. However, reading where the rocks came from convinced her otherwise. Mom is from Utah's Great Basin and has loved the geology there for years.

Simple enough instructions said to place the rock in white distilled vinegar.

Oh...and don't eat rocks. They will break your teeth. In case you didn't know that.

The vinegar started to have a chemical reaction to the rock right away!

Now, ten days later, we have crystals growing all over the place. It's so crazy cool!

So, rambling review of Popcorn Rocks...YES! Get the rocks! They are awesome! They can be found online here: Unique Crafters - Popcorn Rock, Rock Garden That Grows, Pop Corn Rock
