These space rocks are out of this world! Create galaxy rocks with ease. So simple even a preschooler can create these amazing outer space crafts!
There are so many great rock painting ideas out there, they are beautiful, but not always great for kids. We fell in love with these amazing galaxy painted rocks from Color Made Happy and wanted to simplify them for the younger kids. These space rocks were an excellent process art project. Each kid took to them a bit different. If your little one doesn’t like to get messy you might want to try out one of our other stone painting ideas.

Supplies for your outer space rocks:

- Acrylic Paint.
- Old Toothbrushes. (or cheap new ones)
- Surface Cover.
- Clear Acrylic Spray.
How to create easy galaxy rocks:
Start by covering your work space. Choose your space colors. Purples, blues, and even black if you don’t have black rocks. Set aside a silver or white to use at the end. Give the kids some toothbrushes and let them have fun! I showed both kids how to splatter the paint using the toothbrushes. V opted to paint her rocks using the brush, but the older boys got down and dirty with the splatter. Alternate colors and then grab your white or silver and add the stars.
These galaxy rocks turned out so cool! It was messy…so we opted to do this activity outside. Once the space rocks are dry, give them a few coats of clear coat.
Then they are ready to hide!
