We love nature crafts for kids. There is something for searching outside for supplies that add 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:Over 25 Rock Crafts that Kids can create. Stone painting art projects that are simple enough for preschoolers, kindergartners, or grad school children. Use these rock painting techniques for rock hunting, gift giving, or rock collecting!

Let’s start our stone painting:

If you can search around for your stones. Then give them a good wash in the sink. Your little one(s) will enjoy this too! Once they are dry move them to a cooling rack. 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.

This will conserve paint, help it move along the stone, and allow them to easily use the pipette to grab the paint!
