Alright, last week I shared some pictures of our ‘cacus rocks’ that we painted as an easy Toddler project & I thought I’d share something a little more intricate that we did while Momma Piercy was in town this week. We originally wanted to do the entire alphabet, but ended up only doing Presleys’ name instead. We had a pretty hard time locating FREE rocks that were the size/shape we wanted – come on Arizona! Presley is OBSESSED with rocks lately (and she hides them EVERYWHERE!) I have to sneak them back outside so she doesn’t throw them in the house. Maybe when she gets a tad bit older I’ll do the whole alphabet for her.
So Momma Piercy did these while Presley and I were running around and this is such an EASY project & you can really do anything you want. I’m already brainstorming tons of other rocks to decorate.
She started off by using a pencil to write out a letter on each rock and then filled each letter in with a black sharpie.
Then she just sort of went crazy with sharpies and decorated each one a little bit differently. Once they were all dry and we liked them, we gave them a coat of clear spray paint to seal them and all done. I’m super thrilled with how they turned out, but also super excited to decorate more!
And yes, if you look closely, the two year old is coloring with sharpies. Hey, you only live once is my motto. I was going to blame it on grandma if she did anything too messy. As soon as Daddy saw, we got shut down and had to bust out the crayons. Lame. I know.
Not bad eh? I love them & Presley loves saying each letter. Happy Wednesday y’all.
