How to Make a Rock Village Rock Painting Idea for Kids

  1. Have the kids select the rocks which best suit their ideas for their town. Remind them of all of the buildings in your town and the places with which they’re familiar. A few are:
    1. School
    2. Church
    3. Famous Landmarks
    4. Parks
    5. Downtown
    6. Friend’s Houses
    7. Forest, Lake, Mountains, Ocean / Beach
  2. If you haven’t already cleaned them, give the rocks a good scrubbing with soap and water. Set aside to dry in the sun or lay them out on a towel.
  3. Have the kids sketch the designs on their rock village story stones before painting. It will save everyone a bit of frustration. Let them paint. Tip: for more vibrant colors on dark rocks, paint a thin layer of white before adding color over top.
  4. Once the paint has dried, cover in a sealant. For kids, a safe sealant is this ModPodge.

Yield: 1 set of village rocks
