Rock Painting for Kids

By Kranz, Linda

Publishers Summary:
Rock painting is a popular new hobby that people of all ages can enjoy. It incorporates the fun of scouting for rocks and collecting them, and using your creativity to make them into pieces of art! Linda Kranz has been painting on rocks for years, and she shares her ideas and inspirations with young readers in a fun, easy-to-use format. This book is full of tips for cleaning your "canvas," ideas for designs including over 100 cut-out patterns, gift ideas for friends and family, and even games to create from your painted rocks. Rock painting is a perfect way to bring a love of nature and the outdoors indoors for crafting. Kids need just a few materials to get started, and then anything's possible! Does the shape of your rock look like a giraffe, or a piece of pizza? Maybe it's heart shaped to paint for the perfect Valentine. Or maybe it's a smooth circle just waiting for your own design! Ideas and instructions are basic enough for painters as young as 6 to understand. Older children will take the ideas presented here even further to create truly unique pieces of art.
