We love painting and decorating rocks to hide where we live. It’s a really popular hobby where we live and we have a lovely, active Facebook group where we can share pics. My children love to decorate rocks too and it’s something we’ve been enjoying together after home schooling (which isn’t going brilliantly). Craft has always helped us escape and we are doing more than ever at the moment.
Over the last few weeks we’ve created a fun window display with rainbows and Thank You’s to our lovely key workers. It’s become a bit of a talking point and I keep seeing people taking photos of it as they walk past!
I know that some people aren’t hiding painted rocks at the moment. However my daughter is a little magpie and can’t stop picking them up so I am making sure if she does pick up a rock she doesn’t touch her face and washes her hands as soon as she gets home. We’re keeping our rocks to hide when it is safe to do so, but that’s a personal choice.
We wanted to add some painted rocks to our window display so have made a few over the last few weeks. Rainbows were the simplest but most fun designs to decorate.
But we had fun making some lucky 4 leaf clover rocks, as well as some special NHS and key worker rocks too.
I’ve given these a coat of varnish to seal our designs and can’t wait to hide them as soon as we can.
