Hello friends! Today I’m unboxing a super cute Rock Painting craft kit and then get painting with my kids. Painted Rocks are a great way for kids to try their hand at art, and they can then share their creations by leaving them in parks for others to find and enjoy.
As a mom, the best kind of afternoons are when I get to Craft with my kids. It’s messy, loud but filled with so many giggles and story sharing. Core memory making at it’s best. It doesn’t matter how it turns out- the joy is in the making. Make sure to check out these tutorials too How to Make Cinnamon PlayDough at Home, Sponge Painting for Kids, and Scrape Painting

What Do I Need For Rock Painting?
You can buy rocks to paint online, or use a craft kit like these by Creativity for Kids. We used a kit, and it comes with everything you need- the rocks, paints, paint brushes and even shiny dot transfers.

What Kind Of Paint Do You Use On Rocks?
Any kind of acrylic paint will work best on rocks. If you find outdoor craft paint that will be a great option too. A mess free way to decorate these rocks is to use Paint Pens.
How Do You Prepare Rocks For Rock Painting?
Wipe or wash the rocks clean and they are ready to be painted on!
I did some dot painting on the rocks, and it was super fun.
What Do You Spray On Rocks After Painting?
You can use a thin layer of this spray sealer onto the finished Rock Painting. This will make them weather proof but also give a slight shine.
