Get Crafty with Rock Painting

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.

  1. I live in Whangarei , New Zealand and we have a thing called Whangarei Rocks here where people decorate small rocks and hide them in local parks. If you find them you re- hide them somewhere else. The kids get a great walk, fresh air and it is a lot of fun to do. They even have a facebook page to post pics of their finds or the rocks they decorated.

  2. This is a fun craft for the young ones to do, myself and my friend used to paint rocks when we were young and we had a lot of fun!
