Rock painting is a fun activity for kids because it's combining an outdoor activity and an art project for a day of fun. Kids in general seem to have a fascination with rocks, and in particular, is always picking up small rocks and putting them in his pocket to take home. Then rocks can be painted to look like animals, cartoon characters, flowers, cars, or just painted with colorful designs. One of the best projects, and a favorite with the kids, was painting a rock family. The fun part about painting a family is that kids can personalize the rocks to resemble, loosely, their own family. They can make dad, mom, brothers and sisters … even the family pet.
