Take a leisurely family stroll along a nearby shoreline to collect a variety of water-tumbled stones. Small ones are easy to paint and create a scene, larger ones make an ideal dip-dyed doorstop.
For Kids – Mini Rock Garden: Paint some stones to look like cacti and little creatures. Glue on googly eyes with white glue as desired. We placed the finished creations in a terra cotta plant plate filled with sand to make a scene.
