Painted Rocks

What You Need:

some small rocks
thick water-based paint (acrylic)
paintbrushes or sponges
water, old margarine containers
some magic markers
a container of white glue
some newspapers to keep your work area clean


What You Do:

Clean all the dirt off of your rocks and let them dry.
Decide what you are going to create - a picture, an animal, a funky paper weight... it's all up to you!
Begin painting your rock with the designs and colors of your choice. If you like, you can draw some lovely pictures using magic markers instead of paint.
When you are all finished decorating and the paint is completely dry, it's time to seal the rock. Do this by mixing some white glue with a little bit of water.
Brush some of the water/glue mixture onto your rock to seal in the beauty.
You are finished and you can move on to the next one... and the next... and the next!
