50+ Easter Rock Painting Designs
If you've followed my blog you will know it's no secret I'm partial to a bit of rock painting with the kids - Easter is no different! For the past week, we've been doing a few each day ready to hide around our neighborhood to spread some joy this Easter weekend.
Stone painting. The idea is simple:
Gather your supplies (flat, smooth rocks/pebbles and acrylic pens/paint), decorate your rock and go for a lovely long walk in your local area and GET HIDING!
It's like Geocaching 3.0 ;-)
You can write instructions on the bottom of the rock that tell the finder which Facebook group to post a photo to, or which Instagram account to tag. You can also post a photo of the rock on your local community rock hunt groups on Facebook page after it's hidden, giving clues as to its location.
Popular hiding spots include parks, playgrounds and local beauty spots. Be sure not to add/attach anything to the rocks, as there is no guarantee that it will stay on and not become litter or a swallowing hazard for children or wildlife.
What's more important than family, your community and art? This is a fantastic way to blend all three and share simple joys on local walking spots. They are also a great, free gift for family, friends and neighbours for Easter.
To put into action your painting ideas for beginners, I recommend these acrylic pens from Amazon. 18 vibrant colours, non toxic and safe and they have precise tips that makes fine detailed strokes ideal for drawing, outlining, or making fine dots.
There is loads of amazing painting inspiration on Facebook and Pinterest. Below are some some fun designs you might like to try as your rock patters...
We hope you have a wonderful Easter.
Love from our family to yours x
