So we have this neat thing locally called art on the rocks!! It is wonderful to see all the great artists each year! But when you say "Art on the Rocks" to a 3 year old they think literally and go outside and start hauling in your gravel driveway by the bucketful.... :) Literally we had rocks everywhere!!
So after a few size parameters were set we have been on the hunt lately for large rocks that we can paint and add to our flower gardens!! We finally have collected quite a few! And hubby was getting pretty tired of the rocks everywhere! After he asked me for about the 10th time where to put the rocks I figured we probably should get going on them!
So we painted rocks!
I used acrylic paint (thank goodness for Ikea paint bibs)
because we wanted them to be able to be in the garden
and not have the paint wash off!
I set up the paints in an old egg carton that we have used for sensory bins (its on its last leg anyways)
And we painted!
I gave M1 a cookie sheet to paint on! Quick easy clean up : I AM ALL FOR THAT!
Here are a few of our creations!
My stick people may be lacking... But I never claimed to be a GREAT artist!
He is Risen INDEED!!
So there you have it our own form of ART ON THE ROCKS!
