A Pinterest Summer: Rocks
Here are some helpful tips that we have learned so far:
:: Put your FB group on the bottom of the rock, so the finder can post that it was found and if they re-hide it.
:: Use a sealer like modge podge, a spray like this one, or clear finger nail polish. This just helps protect your hard work and your kids masterpieces from the elements.
:: Kids Tattoos are super fun to rub on after paint has dried and before you seal it. If using temporary tattoos, you definitely want to seal it.
:: Have friends over and paint! My friend and I were talking about how much fun it would be to get together with some of our mom friends and paint rocks and drink wine. This activity is not just for the kiddos!
:: Involve the whole family. We all had fun doing this as an activity last weekend and my husband really had fun painting.
:: We used acrylic paint. My favorite is the Martha Stewart Brand or the Hand Made Modern (Target). But, you can find other brands at that are less than a dollar at Michael's and Walmart!
:: There are so many different ideas on Pinterest. . . You should search them and have fun! I want to try one with nail polish!
:: You can find rocks in your back yard or buy some at Lowes or Home Depot for about $12.
:: Don't hide them in the National Parks. . . they don't like it. They will be considered litter and thrown away. Also, don't take rocks from National Parks. . . probably not a great idea. . .and I think it's illegal.
