The Best Rock Painting Kit for Kids
If you’re looking for a fun way to teach your kids about spreading kindness, you are going to love this rock painting kit for kids!
We have ordered crafts from The Orange Art Box in the past, and loved them so much we decided to order another. This box, according to my daughter, was the best!
Kindness Rock Painting Kit for Kids
When our Orange Art Craft Box arrived at our door, the following was included with the Kindness Rock Painting Kit:
- Big Bag of Rocks – Over 2 pounds!!
- 6 Count Acrylic Paint Kit
- Mod Podge Gloss and Sealer
- Foam Brushes
- Paint Brushes
- Paper Art Mat
- Kids Apron
Before my daughter and her friend started painting, we came up with a list of kind things to say on the rocks. They came up with words such as love, be kind, smile, happy, and hugs.
The plan was to carefully paint those words onto the rocks, then paint a beautiful picture around the word.
Once they began painting, they were so excited, they forgot to paint the words on the rocks. Classic kids. 🙂
Instead, they started painting mosaics, sunshines, penguins, ladybugs, flowers, smiley faces, and so much more.
Once they were done painting, we set the rocks onto the paper art mat (included) to dry.
After the rocks were dry, we used the foam sponge brushes to paint a coat of mod podge over the rocks.
The mod podge goes on as a creamy white liquid, but dries clear and give the rocks a shiny top-coat.
The following day, the kids and I went for a walk around town. We found places to hide the rocks for others to find. This simple act of kindness is a great way to brighten another’s day. Spreading kindness with rocks is a fun activity for all kids!
The best part about the Orange Art Box, a craft subscription box for kids, is that you don’t have to commit to a monthly subscription if you don’t want to. Jen, the founder, has set it up for you to be able to subscribe monthly, or order a one-time box, such as this awesome rock painting kit. This would be great as a birthday gift, or as a fun craft project to do with the kids.
