Summertime is the perfect time to collect ideas for easy crafts for kids. What could be easier then painted rocks? This DIY Painted Rock craft is one of those projects simple and easy to have on hand at all times. Not to mention they can also serve a purpose. For instance a friend of mine has painted her own rocks in her garden to use as label markers.
You can also personalize your painted rocks and give as a gift as a paper weight…I know it’s cliche, but, it works and the kids will have fun making it! What a great present for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day!
Why not make some painted rocks for your Fairy Garden? You can decorate rocks to go along with your theme. You can paint a rock blue for a water feature or even a bird bath! The options are endless and I think that’s the fun and playfulness of it all. I think this will become one of your go to easy crafts for kids!
