The kids and I have been painting rocks left and right lately- it’s just so much fun and allows for so much creativity! As our painted rock collection grew, I decided to find some cool ways we could use all those painted rocks.

I’ve included lots of neat painted rock crafts in this collection, as well as some really fun methods for painting rocks you’ll want to try! (And if you’re not in the rock painting mood, head on down to the bottom where I share lots of other ways to use rocks with kids.)
