Craft Idea: Relax with a Painted Rock

An easy and fun craft for the kids, or the kid in you!

Rock painting is a creative and relaxing hobby.

Seriously. A painted rock can add so much personality to your yard, indoor planters and even your desk.

Select flat, smooth rocks for the best painting surface. Use outdoor-weather-resistant acrylic paint to make designs, write words or quotes and more. Use items like toothpicks or the ends of pencils or brushes to make dots. You can also use painter’s tape to make lines or draw on them. No paint? You can also draw on rocks with a permanent marker. For extra protection, spray a sealant on your finished work of art (or new pet) so the colors last longer. Create a rock garden, hide them around town or give them as gifts.
