Like a "Colorful" Rolling Stone


Can I tell you something? Being sick is all sorts of annoying. But being sick with children is just terrible. This was the case last week, and happily, I can report to you that I am mostly better. Last Thursday after like six episodes of Curious George and some ruckus jumping on the sofa cushions, Mila suggested that she paint some rocks "because rocks are kind of a boring color." She has a point. Anyway, this proved to be a fun activity for her, and required minimal activity from me (and now I have this colorful, abstractly decorated rocks to throw around my garden). So if you're ever looking for something to do with your toddlers or older kids, have a painting party and invite a few rocks.

All you need is paints, a brush, some water and a few rocks. ;)

P.S. These grown up painted rock magnets are also really pretty! :)

OMG this looks like so much fun! Marli is about to turn 18 months and she's been so into coloring lately. This would be a great idea for us to try. Sorry for blowing up your posts...just catching up on my favorite blogs :) Have a great one!
