So when you are entertaining grandkids it is important to engage them in low cost activities. Low cost like rock painting. First you find the perfect rocks. (We do discuss the merits of what makes a perfect rock.) We then have to wash all of the rocks we gathered. A good and long scrub is necessary to get all of the dirt off. It did seem I was doing more of the heavy scrubbing.
Once dried, we had to decide what design should we paint. You have to stare at a rock for a while before you can determine what it is destined to be. Can take a lot of time. ❤️ We painted a lot of rocks this summer and fall. Grandma learned that she needs to buy more cheap brushes and hide the good ones. 🤪 Rocks are hard on brushes or maybe it’s the dried on paint that gets them.
I was recently looking around my art studio and I saw a pile of leftover rocks. I decided I should paint a few. I still have many rocks left over. Maybe I should line them up over the tv and stare at them a while. It’s important that grandma stays busy too. ❤️
