These rock crafts are an ace in the hole to keep your kiddos busy this summer.
We’ve all got to find things to do with our small humans for weeks and weeks after the school year ends. That’s a lot of time to fill.
Sure, they’ll play by themselves a lot. They need that time to solve their own “I’m bored,” problems. But, we’ll also be spending plenty of time together and I want to do anything BUT ask them, “what do you want to do?” Those are fighting words that will almost certainly lead to a 3-hour screaming and crying fest.
Anyway, rocks are plentiful so I thought maybe I should see what kinds of things we can do with them that don’t involve one child chucking a rock at the other.
10 Fun Rock Projects To Do With Your Kids
Adorbs! Not only can we spend a few minutes together creating the game, we can use it again and again, all summer and beyond. This is my kind of craft.
Seriously? How cute are these? I can imagine that part of the fun would be going on a scavenger hunt (both inside and outside) to find all sorts of things to add to the rocks to make the monsters.
My kids and I did this last year and it was so much fun. We also went out to parks to search for kindness rocks other people left to be found. Go here to learn how it works.
Have rocks, flour, and salt? Great! You have the makings of a keepsake craft for the kiddos.
Make a run to the craft store and let the kiddos pick out some transfer images. I love these!
By the way, have you seen these Rock Pet crafts for kids? The owl is my favorite, but the fox is pretty darn cute, too.
This is so smart, and I think my kids are going to flip for it. They love examining things.
My son and daughter had way more fun making than I even hoped they would. Just goes to show – gotta try everything to see what they love!
There ya go! Rock crafts for the kids. Be sure you are hanging with me on Facebook because I’m going to share SO MUCH about keeping the kids busy this summer.
PS: You guys should try making these beach graham crackers. Look how cute they are!
