My children are all about painted rocks at the moment. It’s the latest craze and they are fully embracing it! Have you heard about painted rocks? It’s quite simple, people are decorating and hiding painted rocks! This is great fun for adults and children, and pretty cheap too.

I recently bought a big bag of smooth pebbles from our local garden centre. These are perfect for creating story stones but also for crafting painted stones.

With Halloween coming up we wanted to create Halloween themed painted rocks. I’ve seen some awesome pumpkin painted rocks on Pinterest but we wanted to create painted rock monsters.

All we needed was rocks, acrylic paint, googly eyes and Bostik Glu Dots.

First of all we painted our rocks in a variety of different colours. The children picked their favourite colours so we had quite a collection of bright and colourful rocks. They carefully painted all the sides, front and back. They wanted to make sure they were perfect as they were going to be hiding them for others to find!

We finished them off with googly eyes stuck on with Bostik Glu Dots keeping them firmly in place.

We took them to the park this afternoon so the children could hide them for others to find. I’m not sure that their Auntie was very impressed!
