Conversation Heart Painted Rocks
My kids love to play with painted rocks as DIY toys. They magically come to life and are the perfect little figurines. They have been building houses for them out of Magnatiles and have enjoyed reading all of the fun sayings, exchanging rocks with one another and cracking up!
What you need:
- flat round rocks
- white acrylic paint
- metallic acrylic paints
- paint pens
What to do:
Coat the rocks with white acrylic paint and let dry. It will talk a couple of hours to air-dry, or you can speed up the process with a hair dryer. This is a really great step that kids can help with – just be aware the acrylic paint is not washable – so dress accordingly 😉
Paint or draw hearts on the rocks. I love these metallic paints, but paint pens would work for this step too, and might be slightly easier for kids to use themselves. I did an outline with a paint pen, and then had the kids fill in the hearts from there.
Then, using a red and gold paint pen, wrote on the heart painted rocks (once dried) with exact sayings that we found on conversation hearts.
These heart painted rocks were so much fun to make and we are loving playing with them!
