Garden Rock Labels

Yesterday (Sunday) the weather in the Seattle area was so-so, overcast with rain showers here and there, so I presented an indoor/ outdoor craft idea to keep them entertained and OFF the television and game systems, painting rock labels for our garden.

Our yard is filled with various sizes, shapes, and types of rocks, which the majority of them were already being used as garden dividers. We currently have about 20 items planted in our garden but the kids felt that some of the like items could be combined on one rock, so they searched the yard for about a dozen or so rocks. After scrubbing and rinsing each rock, they chose a rock for each label, and we laid them out to dry.

 The kids decided to paint there rocks indoors due to the possibility of light showers throughout the day.
 With a variety of paints, paintbrushes, and a few various items painting begins!

The kids go-to item, wooden skewers!

The rocks that were completed, we have about four more rocks to do.
