This past Saturday was a wet, gloomy day. We went for a puddle hunt in the neighborhood but rain chased us back pretty quickly. We spent the rest of the day inside, drawing haunted houses ( we already dream of Halloween), cutting out masks from paper plates and paper bags and playing. While my hubby was keeping the boys busy playing doctor I started working on these rock people.

Collecting rocks used to be my kids’ hobby but I won’t say no anymore when it comes to joining them in their quest. My target: big flat rocks. I got a few bags of polished rocks from the dollar store but I was disappointed not to find too many big rocks in there. Most of them are quite small and have irregular shapes.
Paint your own rock people
Step 1: Gather a few round flat stones.
Step 2: Give them 2 or 3 coats of beige paint.
Step 3: Use white paint and black marker to draw eyes, nose, mouth and eyebrows.
Step 4: Make hair out of yarn and glue it to the stones.
