Over the summer my kids had a blast finding, hiding and painting rocks in our area. This is such a great time for the family. The snow and cold weather has slowed things down but not stopped it.
Hiding the rocks is a one of the fun parts. We don't always remember to bring them with us to re-hide so sometimes we just re-hide the ones we find.
We hide them on the sides of buildings!
Under trees in plain site in a high traffic area!
Along the side of a walking path!
Although hiding inside buildings is not acceptable some places are like the library.
Rock selection is up to the person.
Sit back and be proud of your rocks.
Don't be surprised if you even make something that you can't part with.
The rocks can be painted or made as elaborate as you like. Even though you may hide them outside or inside the owner can keep them where ever so anything goes on a rock when it comes to the design of them.
Lastly, you have to hide some! That's what makes this so fun. It's all about hiding and finding them!
Rock groups are everywhere and if it's not you can easily start one. Paint a rock and hide it. Start a Facebook group so found rocks can be announced and you can even share clues of where the rocks were hid on there.
This is a great and somewhat cheap activity to do with your family. Rainy day, inside or outside activity. Any age can play to because an artistic ability is not necessary.
I hope you enjoyed reading one of our family fun events! If you hide rocks I would love to hear about your experience.
