Spring is here! Spring is definitely here in full swing and so are all the colors in the rainbow! Colors should come back and be amazingly bright and cleverly bold! So we brainstormed on frugal craft ideas and got creative. We decided on painting rocks. We went outside to hunt for some pretty fist-sized rocks that are smooth. Here are some wonderful and fun crafts for kids.
Fun Crafts for Kids
For this craft, you will need:
- tempera paint in different bright colors
- smooth rocks
There is only one rule for this craft: There are no rules! Let your child or children unleash creativity and let it run wild in any direction they desire. It worked best for us to give each child about 5 fist-sized rocks, so it gives them a chance to try different designs and patterns. Another thing was to let the children talk about what they are doing and what they are creating. It helped them solidify their plans for each rock.
For one, my son wanted to draw random shapes. For another, he wanted a bold red color. My daughter, on the other hand, wanted to make a rainbow on one and stripes on another. It was a lot of fun seeing the final product. Make sure that they dry completely in a place where dust or debris won’t stick to the paint as it dries.
Once the rocks were all completely dry, we walked outside and found a spot on our front yard to place them where they are visible. They are the perfect seasonal decoration, don’t you think?
