Painting rocks is something my kids and I occasionally enjoy. We get a lot of
our ideas from the ‘Painting on Rocks’ books, however, this is not necessary.
Some ideas are:
~ Make address rocks for neighbors, friends or family by painting the rock a
color that coordinates with the house that you are making it for. Paint on the
address number and a few little flowers or other decorations.
~ Have the kids paint them into ‘creatures’ or insects to decorate your garden.
~ Sometimes rocks come in unusual shapes such as hearts - accentuate that shape
with paint. My daughter once used fabric paint and outlined a heart-shaped
rock with one color, then kept making new heart shapes inside each new heart in
a different color. Some outlines she did as polka dots, some as dashed lines
and some as full lines. It was really cute, but best of all, she had fun doing
~ Paint them into large flowers - sunflowers and daisies are easy flowers to
paint. You can set these into a planter for a ‘rock garden’.
