Rock painting is a great relaxing activity, that you can share with the entire family. There is no right or wrong way to paint rocks. I'm not very creative so I do some very simple crafts. Crafting, in general, does not have to be elaborate.
Crafting for me is very relaxing. It's a great way to unwind and relax. It also helps relieve stress and pain. Rock painting is also a great way to bring joy to others. You can paint a rock and design it for someone in particular or you could join in the fun of painting and hide them in your community.
I found a rock once at our local convenience store on the air pump. I was so excited to find it, and it brought a smile to my face. Painting and hiding rocks in your community is also a great source of exercise. The entire family can join it as well. What is a better form of exercise there than a slow family walks together? You can find rocks, and hide rocks on your walk.
Rocking painting is also a great way to spend a raining day.

I had fun painting these rocks. It took a few coats of paint to cover them but there is still tons of paint left int he jars. My husband and even got in on the fun. What I love the most are the metallic markers you can use to write on the rocks. This is perfect for inspirational quotes.
The trick to using the markers is you have to apply the glaze first and let it dry. If you try to use the markers first, the glaze will smear the markers. My husband loves to put his initials on everything so he used one rock with nothing but the glaze and blue metallic marker.
