This nearly no-mess rock angels craft for kids is a great way to spend an afternoon trapped inside on a winter day. With just a few supplies, you’re ready to craft!
My little girl is having a lot of fun painting rocks. The other day, she picked up a rock and screamed, “I need white feathers!” while running through the house.
She rummaged through her craft cabinet and with just a few supplies produced this adorable rock angel.
Once she told me how she did it, we had a great talk about mixed media art. She wanted to share it with her “Ruffles friends.”
So here you are, Ruffles friends: my daughter’s adorable rock angels craft for kids. And a bit of a different format because Elise really wanted to “write her own tutorial.”
Side note: how adorable is that, y’all?!
Supplies for Painted Rock Angels
For us, this craft had no glue and no mess. We paint a few rocks at a time so we can have them on hand for when inspiration strikes (or the witching hour arrives, whichever comes first).
- Washi tape
- White painted rock
- 2 white feathers
- A silver (or yellow) pipe cleaner
- Black pen or marker
Instructions for Rock Angels (with a 5-Year-Old’s Tips)
You can watch the quick video below or follow these simple instructions.
Step 1: Paint
Paint a rock white.
Tip from a 5-year-old: paint a lot of rocks white.
Step 2: Attach Feathers
Using washi tape, attach two feathers on the back of the rock. Isn’t this just the easiest and most simple rock painting idea for kids? Come on – they’re doing this all on their own!
Tip from a 5-year-old: it’s okay if you use a lot of tape. Just make sure they stick.
Step 3: Halo
Shape and cut a pipe cleaner halo.
Tip from a 5-year-old: you can use yellow pipe cleaners, too.
Step 4: Draw.
Draw a face and eyes.
Tip from a 5-year-old: closed eyes are easier. You just make two moons on their sides.
