I am always happy to encourage activities that involve imagination and creativity; whether at the table with pencil and sketch pad or outdoors with wood and rope. When Lydia and Hannah asked if they could paint their rock collection one hot, summer afternoon, I was happy to oblige their request.
For some time, Lydia and Hannah have been collected “smooth” rocks in all shapes and sizes. They used them often when playing with their peg dolls to make gates, tables, and forts. How would they paint them?
I happened to have some paint pens from another project that I gave the girls to use. They quickly set up a spot to paint and the creativity began. I must say that they did a fabulous job.
Now that they have painted their rocks, the hunt is on for more smooth rock canvases…
