Here’s another summer time boredom buster idea. I sent the kids off to find rocks they wanted to paint from the field behind the house. I told them to look for the smoothest rocks they could find- but they all decided on lumpy ones…but hey it’s their rock!
You can pick up cheap paints and brushes at the dollar tree but we’re crafty so we have lots of acrylic paint colors on hand here.
You can buy a rainbow of colors on Amazon or head to the local craft store with a coupon!
Wash and dry the rocks (the kids thought it was hilarious to dry the rocks with the hair dryer) and let them transform the rocks into creatures or where ever their imagination takes them!
If you want to use the rock outside, maybe as a garden marker, coat it several times with clear spray paint otherwise the acrylic paint will wash off.
