We recently took my daughter fossil hunting at Big Brook Park in Marlboro, and it was so much fun! We packed our water shoes, a pail for fossils, some towels, and headed out.

 

 

 

 

Big Brook is incredibly beautiful, and even has some walking trails to take the kids on a little adventure. Once down by the stream, you can sift out some old rocks and look for shark teeth and other remains. We even saw some little frogs along the way! It’s a great way to spend a couple hours out of the house, and remain socially distant from others!
