Rock painting is all the rage. From rock hunting to just painting on rocks for fun, everyone is getting into this entertaining and easy craft.
Rock Painting Ideas for Kids
With all the beautiful rock art floating around, we wanted to make sure that the littlest crafters don’t get left out. Some of the story rocks and intricate paintings are too much for kids to craft. So we decided to search for some fun crafts that are perfect the smallest rock hunters. Grab some paints, a handful of rocks, and your little ones and let’s start stone painting!
