Many people celebrate Memorial Day by visiting grave sites with their families and leaving flowers. Painted rocks are a nice way for kids to feel involved, and to feel like they are leaving something that will last.
- Acrylic Paint
- Paint Brushes
Plan out your design before you start. Paint the rock using acrylic paint. I used a paint that is labeled for outdoor use, but my experience has been that most acrylic craft paint is pretty durable in any situation. After you paint the rock, you may choose to use a protective acrylic spray. I didn’t, but using it would make the rock look shinier.
If you don’t visit a grave site on Memorial Day, this is a nice activity to keep the kids occupied while the hamburgers cook! Painted rocks look nice in a garden, or among other decorative rocks.
Happy Memorial Day!
