Space Rocks

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.

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. These space rocks are out of this world! Create galaxy rocks with ease.
