Crafting with Kids: 4th July Rock Painting

The kids and I have a fun 4th of July craft project for you this month that makes great table decor, or a fun hand-painted favor for your guests.

What you need to make these fun patriotic painted rocks:

  • Rocks
  • Outdoor Paint – blue, red, and white
  • Stencils
  • Paint Brushes

Begin by painting your rocks one solid color.  We found that the blue rocks only needed 2 coats of paint, but the white ones required 3-4 coats.

Allow the rocks to dry between each coat of paint.

Once the rocks are completely dry, firmly hold a stencil on top of each and using just a small amount of paint on your brush, paint each stencil onto the rocks.

These painted rocks are perfect for not only holding down items that might blow away in the wind, such as napkins during an outdoor party, but if you stencil guests names onto the rocks, they make great place markers too that guests can take home with them.

I hope you have a happy and safe 4th of July with your family and friends.

Happy crafting!

    I’d love it if you shared this with the Fun Family Crafts audience.
    FFC is similar to Craftgawker but it only features kid friendly tutorials.

    Looking forward to seeing what fun crafts you submit!
