Painting rocks is a classic craft and a family favorite around here. When my daughter and I gathered rocks outside I didnt tell her what they were for knowing if I asked her what she wanted to do with them shed say Lets paint! and she did. We used Martha Stewart paints that I got for this post last spring. I love these paints for adult crafts but they are not at all washable. Have wet sponges on hand for anything that might get paint on it like little boots that trail across your deck for example. You could do this with more kid friendly paint but I just love the colors that this paint comes in and frankly its what I had on hand. Gather your materials. You will need some rocks , paint ( this is all weather so the eggs can be put outside) , brushes, a drop cloth like a paper grocery bag and sponges or a wet rag to clean up spills. Paint. After some pink she decided like many of her favorite clothes this egg needed to have polka dots. While she made the dots I made a striped egg. She helped me choose a few of the colors for the other eggs but after her big polka dot one she was ready to move on to playing in our garden while I had a blast painting in the sun. She came back a few times to observe and give me tips like Make it polka dots! . Toddlers arent made to sit for a long time carefully working on projects so dont take it personally if they have enough way before you thought they would.
