As we said in our previous post, rock painting has several benefits for kids. It is a great way to get them outside and doing something active and creative. It provides a wonderful sensory experience with the smooth feel of the rocks and the squishiness of the paints, and the materials you need are cheap and easy to find.
In this post we have some of our favourite ideas for making your own pet rocks including:
- rock people and mix and match rock faces
- animals, birds and bugs
- minions, monsters and muppets
