Spread Some Cheer with Kindness Rocks

With everything that is going on in the world these days, it seems only right to spread joy and love wherever we can. I know I would appreciate being told I was “pear-fect” or that someone was “grape-ful for me”.

Although rock painting is one of our favorite nature crafts, this is one of the first times we’ve shared a rock painting project using paint pens. I love the amount of detail and precision you get with paint pens. It feels so much like using a regular marker to color with except the surface is a stone instead of paper. Additionally, there is literally no clean up needed with paint pens as opposed to paints and brushes.
