Painting rocks is a perfect outdoor activity for days when it's too hot to be running around but you don't want to be stuck inside. Kids from toddler to tween can participate and the pieces of rock art can be proudly displayed in your garden.

This project is best done in the shade and it's preferable to line the ground with newspaper because spills will happen.
Put paints onto palettes or into small paper cups, hand out paintbrushes, give each child three to four rocks and let his or her imagination take over.
And if you're feeling particularly brave, let them stir the paint around in the bowls and palettes and have a spatter party.
I guarantee your kids will remember it as a highlight of their day.
