Kind Kids Club: Rainbow Rock Project

Posted in Create, Kind Kids Club
on March 14, 2017

My kids are really getting into our Kind Kids Club each month. While I know it’s dumping snow on our friends up north (thanks Stella), we’re all sunshine and blue skies here in Arizona. More and more of our days are spent outside before it’s too hot to enjoy it. This past week, the temps have been in the mid 80’s already!

It’s Spring Break for my oldest kiddo this week, so we took this time off from school to do something kind for our community. A while back, I stumbled upon the Rainbow Rock Project on Instagram and I loved the idea. I knew my rainbow loving girlie would enjoy this project.

We made our own Rainbow Rocks using rocks from our backyard and puffy paint which I thought would give our rainbows a bright color and cool texture.

I set the kids to work (outside of course) creating rainbow rocks of different shapes and sizes.

My daughter was especially proud of the heart shaped rock she found.

We let our rainbow rocks dry overnight and the next day we headed to our local park to do some trash clean-up. We live in a nice area with lots of families and kids and nice park too. I was surprised at how much trash we easily found, but the kids were excited to have trash to clean up!

We took a few grocery bags and our toy grabbers so they weren’t touching the trash with their hands.

After some trash clean-up, we took some of our rainbow rocks and placed them along the walking path, on benches and anywhere we thought people might like to find a surprise rainbow!

We’re saving some for other places like outside the library, our neighbors front steps and my daughter plans on taking some to school after Spring Break!

We hope our rainbow rocks bring a smile to some people’s faces! Rainbow Rocks are much better than trash in our park!

Be sure to check all our Kind Kids Club activities. We share something new each month!

    This looks like so much fun. I never though of using Puffy paint on rocks. And what a fun surprise to be walking along and find one of the rocks along the way. Thank you so much for sharing this post in the All For Mamas Link Party Week 3 #allformamas. I will share it on our facebook group page, my page, g+, pinterest and twitter.
