Old Rock Day

This day is completely dedicated to collect different rocks. To make this day more exciting, you can go on a small adventurous trip to hunt for old fossils and rocks or you can simply do different things with rocks at home.
Every year on January 7th, people are encouraged to go and dig in their yards or around the area to find their favorite rock.

Origin of Old Rock Day
Though the exact reason is not known why Old Rock Day is celebrated but it is known that the roots are as old as fossils. Every year on January 7th, people are encouraged to go and dig in their yards or around the area to find their favorite rock.
People either preserve the old rocks as it is or they paint faces to make it look attractive and impressive. This day also includes many activities for kids other than adults. In this kids are supposed to find rocks that are flat, smooth and round. They then need to wash the rocks well with water and then dry them before they begin their activity. Kids can use different paints and colors like acrylic paints look very bright and nice. As decorations, google eyes, glitters, smooth yarns for hair, markets, glue and colored paper can be kept ready.
As kids choose their own rocks, it is considered to be their pet rock. They are therefore free to decorate as per their choice. Every kid has to investigate what are the different types of pet rock? And what are the three important categories of rocks. Every characteristic is described and explained with an example.

Old Rock Day Activities:

- Bedtime stories told to kids
- Organizing a costume party
- Making a note of a few funniest sayings
- Going on a holiday or a vacation
- Go for picnics
- Teaching new tricks
- Giving different names
- Make an interesting scrapbook

Other than making these interesting faces, old rocks can also be used in a creative way. One can color old rocks with crayons and make paper weights. For this only smooth and flat rocks would be required. Another creative idea is to make a rock necklace with old rocks.
