Painted Rocks for Kids

These adorable painted rocks are a favorite for all ages. Kids can keep them as their own little pet rock, give them as a gift, or place them in the garden as a fun decoration. Here in California, and many other states, painting rocks has become a huge craze. People paint rocks and hide them in different areas of their towns. People find the rocks and take selfies with them for local rock-sharing Facebook groups, and then re-hide them.

We think these rocks are cute to hide or just keep in your own garden as a cute decoration. If you’d like to share your own painted rocks tag us with #greenkidcraftsrocks on Instagram.
