These rock painting ideas for kids will keep them outdoors enough that they enjoy both the summer and Fall days. Crafts are also good for a child’s cognitive development, and not to mention that doing these with your kids presents a great bonding opportunity
It is not necessary that these come out perfect. I enjoy something as simple as spray painting the rocks with different colors. The rocks do look better though if they are perfectly shaped and smooth. This means that a rock collecting trip to the beach is in order for a family that is fortunate to be living by the coast.. Fret not if you are in-lander like me, you can buy painting rocks and also enjoy this craft with your kids.
