Who wants more rock crafts?
We’ll just pretend everyone is excited by this. I told that I had tons of these. If I look through pictures, I bet I can find a few more.
One of the annoying things about living with my parents is a lot of my stuff is packed away in what I call “deep storage.” Like a meat locker but for my things. So all my crafting books, all my cook books, all my old scouting books, and a lot of my crafting supplies are out of reach. So annoying.
But I’m sure that I can find more crafts and activities to keep my tornadoes busy and your little ones busy.
1. Paper maché rocks. Cut up colorful tissue paper. Or just pretty paper. Glue the paper all over the rock. Seal it if you want.
2. Rock collage. Cut pictures or words out of magazines or print pictures and words. Glue them on the rock. Seal if desired.
3. Paint rocks gold or silver. Makes for great treasure to hunt for. I used to hide them in the sand box when I had young pirates.
4. Paint rocks with nail polish. I should do a whole post on what I‘ve painted with nail polish. Like so much.
5. Words! Paint the rock. Write names.
5.a Write words. Have kids make sentences and poetry out of word rocks.
5.b Write cool sayings and quotes on rocks. Give them away. Hide them around the neighborhood.
6. Ladybugs. Find round or oval rocks. Paint them red. Paint a small portion black for the head. Paint dots. You don’t really have to do red. I’ve seen them painted with other colors.
7. Ghosts. Paint them white. Draw a ghost face on them in black marker. I had the cubs do this one year. They loved it. Points for painting in glow-in-the-dark afterwards. We also made jack o lanterns as well.
More to come. Stay safe. Stay sane.
