We came back from the ocean with a TON of rocks. Well, what felt like a ton. One weekend afternoon it was downright frigid outside and the kids were NEEDING something to do. Okay, I NEEDED something for them to do. They were so excited when I dumped the rocks into the sink, let them each have a job rinsing them off and drying them. As they did this, I dumped my supply of miscellaneous crafting supplies on the table.
And we started with a nice coating of paint. It actually hardly took any time at all to dry on the rocks. Once they were done painting a few, the first were ready to decorate using glue dots or good old white Elmer’s School Glue.
It looked like so much fun, I jumped in and we literally spent two hours making creatures, monsters, funny faces, little rock pictures and my son even made me one with my name on it, designating it his “love rock”.
We had a blast making memories of our beach trip out of these rocks. Have you ever decorated rocks or some other piece of nature?
