I was doing some gardening the other day and Shae was helping by pulling weeds and putting the rocks back under the deck that slide down into the grass. She kept showing me the colors and shapes of the rocks and I knew this could aid in a fun craft. I had her pick out 6 smooth rocks and we washed them and let them dry in the sun for a few minutes.
smooth rocks, any size, cleaned and dried
googly eyes, glitter, buttons, etc (optional)
Set up a place to start, protect your work surface. Set out a bowl of water to clean brushes and a plate or palette with assorted paint colors. We used the 2oz bottles found at most craft stores.
This is where you can either let the kids paint free-form or give guidance to create something specific.
No matter what is created just have fun. My craft boost is mostly inspired by GummyLump’s #300CraftsforKids Campaign. Check out all the ideas that have been posted all year.
