I've been wanting to paint rocks and make a little rock garden for a long while now. And, we finally got around to doing it!
We collected our rocks over time. Then, we washed the dirt off of them and let them dry.
We used many different sizes, shapes and colors!
T found some mossy sticks to paint as well.
A good hour or so later, we finally finished painting all our rocks and set them out near our front step.
I loved how they turned out.
T now has been asking to paint rocks every single time we go outside. I do want to do it again, especially since our paint, sadly, got quickly washed away by the rain.
I sprayed acrylic sealent spray on them in hopes that it would keep the paint on the rocks at least a little while. I even put the rocks under the overhang of our house, but they quickly washed off in the first rain. I admit, I was quite disappointed. We both worked really hard on our rock paintings. But, then again, it just gives us a good reason to paint more rocks! And seeing how T loves doing it so much, I definitely see us doing this activity again. Especially when the weather starts to warm up. (Hopefully soon!)
After we made our rock garden, T was being her silly, 3-year old self and started making funny faces.
Then, she asked to take pictures of me making silly faces. So, I obliged.
I love days like these.
