Kid Craft: Mod Podge Rocks

Kid Craft: Mod Podge RocksWhether your kiddo is the outdoor active type or the indoor crafty type, this mod podge craft has it all. 

So grab a bucket and a bottle of decoupage and lets get started.

Kid Craft: Mod Podge Rocks

Begin by heading outdoors and going on a rock hunt.  On this particular day we only ventured as far as our own backyard.  If the weather’s good, though, you can stretch this part into an all-morning nature hike.  Help the kids find large, flat rocks – they’ll work the best for stage two.

Once you’ve returned from exploring, rinse and dry all your treasures.

Now it’s time to decorate.  I had some left over children’s paint chips lying around from our latest trip to Home Depot.  Since my son is a big fan of this particular mouse, I knew they’d be perfect.  You could also use stickers of whatever character, animal, vehicle, etc. your child is currently obsessed with.

Next, cover your rocks with a thin layer of Mod Podge, apply the paper, and cover with a second coat.

Allow the stones to dry overnight and you’re all set.  There are endless possibilities for playing with these rocks – hide them in the back yard for a scavenger hunt, make sets of each color and turn them over to play a memory game, or use them as a cute way to keep your picnic blanket in place.  Even better, turn the kids loose with them sans instructions and see what they come up with!
