Create Your Own Painted Rocks!
Hello Readers! Are you looking for more fun summer activities to do this summer? Have you tried painting rocks yet? It is a great way to get outside and use the creative side of your brain while school is out.
Follow these simple steps to get started:
Take a nature walk with an adult and look for rocks that you would like to paint. Smooth, flat rocks are the easiest ones to paint.
Prepare your rocks for painting by washing them with a mild detergent and drying them well and letting them sit on a paper towel for several hours.
You can make almost any type of permanent paint work, but for beginners, it is best to start with acrylic paint, acrylic paint pens, or permanent markers like Sharpies.
Get creative and make "Rock Pets" by adding googly eyes and other decorations.
Once your rocks are completely dry, you can either put them in a special place in your home or hide your rocks around your neighborhood for others to find and enjoy.
