We love nature crafts for kids. There is something for searching outside for supplies that adds that extra element of fun! I saw some really fun pour-painted paper weights on Happy Hooligans and it got me thinking… we could make a few changes to create a fun Earth Day project! This stone painting process was simple enough for my 3 year old to do, and could be done with much more precision with an older child!

Supplies for your painted stones:

Next, use a bit of tape to attach your paint dishes to the table. Stone painting is a great way to add earth day decorations to your class or home.
