Rocks

2 ROCK STORY

How to: Paint rocks with whim­si­cal images that will in­spire the imag­i­na­tion. Chil­dren can start a story by pulling a painted rock from the bag. The next part of the story is prompted by an­other rock, and so the story car­ries on.

1 cheery cac­tus

How to: Paint five ob­long rocks with cac­tus de­signs and leave to dry. Place a small pot up­side down in­side a larger pot, adding a card­board disc on top to cre­ate a plat­form. We used a hot glue gun to keep the rocks in place.

4 NOUGHTS AND CROSSES

How to: We used Re­sene Sil­ver Alu­minium and Gold Dust to give th­ese rocks a touch of glam­our. Noughts and crosses are ideal for play­ing ei­ther out­side or on the lounge floor.

3 OUR FAM­ILY ROCKS

How to: We chose rocks of dif­fer­ent sizes and shapes to rep­re­sent each mem­ber of the fam­ily. When al­lowed to dry be­tween lay­ers, Re­sene paints work ex­cep­tion­ally well for rock paint­ing, even at this level of de­tail. We used a black sharpie for out­lines.
