Remember the days when crafts were simple and required very few supplies? What happened to those days? If you’re tired of spending lots of money at your local craft store for supplies your kids don’t end up using, it’s time to rethink things. Let’s go back to the days when crafts were more about being creative and less about following instructions and spending a lot of money. How about rock painting!
These rock painting crafts are not only simple and fun, but require very few supplies. In fact, you could probably go out into your yard and find rocks waiting to be painted. If you don’t want to deal with washing dirty rocks, you can also find rocks in the craft section of many discount department stores. You can find stones in a variety of sizes. Whether you’re looking for stones to make a larger painting on or small pebbles to make jewelry with, you’ll find what you need. You can also find inexpensive paint and paintbrushes while you’re there.
Below you’ll find rock painting crafts that can be done by kids of all ages. This roundup offers both easy and intricate designs. If your kids love to paint, you can’t go wrong with these crafts. And, if they aren’t happy with the design they made, you can always spray paint the rocks a solid colour and let them start over.
