Kindness Rocks are everywhere these days, one even showed up in our front yard! My desire to make some went from thinking about it, to now searching Pinterest for ideas. I was getting serious. Then I found out about the NEW Plaid FolkArt 3D Indoor/Outdoor Acrylic Paints, that was it…I HAD to paint some rocks!
A lot of the time, the simplest toys can be the most fun, and that’s why I love the idea behind story stones. They’re simple painted rocks with objects that can help build the scene for a story. They encourage kids to be creative and use their imaginations! Here are some great story stone ideas.
Customize your stones to fit your child’s personality. Design the rocks based on their favorite toys, food, and places.

Make yourself a no-maintenance friend with this quick craft.
Now that summer vacation has begun I’ve been on the lookout for easy crafts we can do on the go using materials we find. It may only be early June, but it has been over 90 degrees all week and we’ve found ourselves hanging out at the river a little every day. The little ones always collect rocks by the river, and come to think of it, where ever we travel. So I got to thinking, why not make use of some of those rocks in our crafts this summer? Here are some crafts you can make with rocks from the park, nature hikes or even in your own backyard.
This first idea is a great craft and game to play on camping trips. Story rocks are fun and easy to make, and they make relaxing around the campfire even more interesting. Kids love hearing and telling stories but they usually need something to get the story started, these rocks are the perfect inspiration for group storytelling.
