Last week I took some rocks...
... and some paint...
...and painted them.
This little one might be my favourite.
I really like this one too since the rock "stands" up.
Something I learned is that you can't wipe paint off rocks. You either live with it, try to make the mistake part of the painting or paint over it. The rock that ended up being an eye was painted three times. And you don't need a lot of paint to paint rocks.
I think there may be more painted rock posts in the future. My kids really want to do it, too.
