Painted rock ideas for kids

I don’t remember who started collecting rocks in my family: the boys or me. One thing is for sure, we’ve got by now a pretty impressive stone collection.

Sometimes when I need a certain rock size that we don’t have, I will buy some more from a craft or dollar store. But many of our rocks come from lake shores in our state and some even from our vacations.

The kids will play with them and a few will end up on their craft table, covered in paint. Their last project was to use golden paint to create gold rocks for their treasure chests.

Today I have gathered 37 rock painting ideas.
