Bringing the outdoors into your creative art time is so much fun for children. It is a brilliant way to bring creative inspiration into their minds and help kids get inspired by nature. Rock painting is fun and a real adventure. This is a great sunny day activity.

Let's get Started:

  1. Nature Walk: Take the children on a nature walk to collect rocks and exciting leaves. Please encourage them to find shapes that resemble animals or objects.

  2. Preparation: Set up the work area with a plastic sheet and put on aprons for protection.

  3. Exploration: Arrange the rocks and leaves on the table, discussing the shapes and potential creations with the children. See if they can spot animals or other objects in the rocks.

  4. Painting: Use tempera paints to start painting the rocks. Let the children's imaginations run wild as they create their masterpieces. They can paint and repaint for hours of enjoyment.

  5. Drying and Detailing: Allow the painted rocks to dry. Once dry, children can add eyes, ears, and other details using glue or a black marker.
